Bush heads east on latest trip
(CNS): Updated -- Having returned this week from his travels in northern Europe in connection with a number of meetings relating to the overseas territories, the premier will be travelling again from Friday but this time he will be heading east. According to sources close to the United Democratic Party, the premier will be taking another long haul overseas trip, this time to Asia. McKeeva Bush is understood to be heading to Japan for a Commonwealth Finance Ministers meeting ahead of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank meeting and then on to China. CNS has been unable to confirm the details with official sources despite requests about who is travelling with the premier and why.
CNS contacted the premier’s office but has received no response. In fact, CNS has received ‘no response’ to any of the questions sent to the premier or his office for several months and has been requested by the premier not to contact him.
Aside from the refusal to acknowledge CNS enquiries, it is understood that by 7pm Wednesday evening no official statements had been released to any other media house in Cayman regarding the premier’s latest overseas trip. It is not known how long the premier will be gone for or which officials are accompanying him.
It is understood that Bush will be attending a gathering of finance ministers from the Commonwealth to discuss debt problems in Commonwealth Small Vulnerable Economies (CSVEs), which will be held in Tokyo on 9 and 10 October.
The main IMF and World Bank meetings in Tokyo a few days later consists of the boards of governors and decision-making bodies of the two organizations. The meeting is usually attended by finance ministers, central bank governors, and other principals from around the world. Once in every three years the Annual Meetings are held outside the organizations’ Washington DC headquarters.
The travel schedule of the Cayman premier inexplicably continues to be only reluctantly revealed by officials and usually as a result of pressure from the media and the wider public. The last trip that the premier took, which included a visit to London and his first meeting with the new UK Foreign Office minister for overseas territories as well as OT meetings in Denmark and Greenland, was only revealed after the fact.
