Consultation on the future of the Overseas Territories.
The Foreign Secretary made an announcement to Parliament on 14 September 2011 setting out the UK Government’s strategy towards the Overseas Territories. This focused on three policy goals:

The Government is keen to gather views on how best to realise these goals in each Territory and invites, in particular, responses to six key questions.
Challenges: Economic development, Everyday life, Politics & government

Governance, financial management and economic planning
