The political leaders and representatives of the UK and the Overseas Territories met as the Joint Ministerial Council (JMC) at Lancaster House in London on 1 and 2 December. We welcomed the Premier of Bermuda and the newly elected Chief Minister of Anguilla to their first Council and congratulated the Premier of BVI and the Chief Minister of Gibraltar on their recent re-election.

The Joint Ministerial Council is the highest political forum under the 2012 White Paper, bringing together UK Ministers, elected Leaders and Representatives of the Overseas Territories for the purpose of providing leadership and shared vision for the Territories. Its mandate is to monitor and drive forward collective priorities for action in the spirit of partnership.

The UK and Overseas Territories Governments made a number of commitments to action in the Joint Communique issued after the Joint Ministerial Council in December 2014. The attached report summarises work undertaken by the UK Government to carry out those commitments.
