CBO tackling crime & politics

| 29/12/2009

(CNS): The problem of rising crime, unemployment, as well as the prosperity and politics of the Cayman Islands will be the areas up for discussion when a local panel of experts discusses the future of the islands at the annual Cayman Business Outlook conference next month. Gary Linford will be moderating when the Commissioner of Police David Baines (left), Pastor Al Ebanks of Agape Family Worship Centre, Auditor General Dan Duguay, consultant Paul Byles and attorney Sherri Bodden come together to examine the issues at the forefront of the community.

Organisers are also encouraging the public to submit questions, which can be confidential and anonymous to the moderator at conference-moderator@dmtcgroup.com for the “Jobs, Prosperity, Politics and Crime: What’s in store for Cayman?”  discussion which will round out this year’s conference “Prospering in a Grave New World’ on Thursday 21 January at the Ritz Carlton.

McKeeva Bush, the premier, will open the conference which organizers say includes prominent and influential members of the community including professional local and expatriate business people, leading bankers, lawyers and senior members of government.
