IoD to put election under the spotlight
THE top priorities for business ahead of the general election are set to come under the spotlight.
The Guernsey Institute of Directors’ annual mid-term debate will focus on key issues for the business community, including how to build back better from the Covid-19 pandemic, at the event being held at St James on Wednesday 16 September.
Ahead of the event, a member survey will be circulated, the results of which will form the basis of the debate. The survey results will be presented and discussed in a panel session moderated by James Falla.
‘As we head towards Guernsey’s first island-wide election, this is the perfect opportunity for business to put forward its thoughts to the island’s future States and really discuss how Guernsey needs to move forward and in particular build back better, building on the Revive and Thrive strategy and other areas which should be prioritised,’ said IoD chairman John Clacy.
The IoD’s objective is ensure businesses’ needs are part of the conversation as candidates assemble their manifestos, the electorate considers their options and the next States start the new term.
Law firm Carey Olsen is sponsoring the event and managing partner Russell Clark said: ‘We are proud to once again support the IoD with their flagship events in Guernsey.
‘They always highlight and discuss the most important issues facing Guernsey businesses, and in the current climate it has never been more crucial to get the priorities and make-up of the next States of Deliberation right. I am looking forward to what promises to be a lively and interesting debate.’
