THE process of drawing up a formal financial services strategy for the island is to start this month.

Three industry workshops have been organised by the Commerce and Employment Department’s finance sector development unit for invited industry delegates to attend, along with representatives of the States and the GFSC. The first takes place at the end of January.

‘Our purpose is to consider the next decade and what sort of industry do we want at that time, and what jurisdictions do we want to be operating in,’ said Jarrod Cowley-Grimmond, director of finance sector development for the States, pictured.

‘To some extent you can say that we have always had a strategy – of low taxes, flexible regulation, innovative legislation, and getting out there and promoting ourselves.'

Guernsey the new Hong Kong of the north.

Low taxes,flexible regulations and encouraging St Peter Port to build outwards and upwards and seeing the introduction of shanty villages for the poorest along the sand dunes of the west coast.

Only my views when Hong Kong was the finance centre.Over population and the shanty towns outside the city.

Our extended airport runways for executive enjoyment, and taxi air services bypassing the British Goverments tax invaders policies.

I think i must have woken up to a dreadful dream.tell me if i am wrong please

Realist

Nothing wrong with planning a future strategy for the finance industry but, with the rest of the world turning against us, I really think we urgently need to look at diversifying our economy too.
