Government continues Brexit discussions

Members of the Isle of Man Government have visited London this week to take part in more Brexit discussions.

Chief Minister Howard Quayle and Enterprise Minister Laurence Skelly visited the UK capital on Monday to continue a programme of political and economic engagement.

Mr Quayle attended the latest in a series of quarterly meetings between the Crown Dependencies and the UK Department for Exiting the European Union.

The meeting took place days after the publication of the proposed Withdrawal Agreement – it indicates the Island will retain its current relationship with the UK.

Mr Quayle says: "It is always beneficial to spend time on the ground in Westminster to learn more about the UK’s Brexit negotiations.

"Positive engagement with the UK builds a deeper understanding of the Isle of Man and ensures our voice continues to be heard.

"The regular meetings with Robin Walker help to cement our relationship with those at the very heart of the Brexit process.

"We will continue to use these insights to work towards the best possible outcome for the Island."

Mr Skelly added: "In addition to Brexit the future of international business centres remains in sharp focus, with issues around trade, tax and transparency.

"The visit to London provided an opportunity to reaffirm the Island’s value to the global community and to spell out the differences that set us apart from other offshore nations.

"Face-to-face meetings are the best way to deliver the right messages to the right people."
