Iod Jersey Annual Debate 2018

20/09/2018
17:30 – 22:30
Royal Jersey Agricultural & Horticultural Society Royal Jersey Showground, La Route de la Trinite, JE3 5JP

Jersey’s most anticipated business event returns this year to focus on the question ‘Is Jersey’s economic model sustainable?’ with the aid of moderator Alastair Stewart OBE. Sponsored by Carey Olsen,

Picking up on key themes to emerge from last year’s IoD Jersey Annual Debate and the Mid-Year Review earlier this year, the event this year, once again kindly sponsored by Carey Olsen, will examine just how sustainable Jersey’s economy really is.

Featuring a high calibre line-up of local and visiting speakers and panellists, the event will examine Jersey’s tax environment and ask to what extent it should be revisited in order to meet the needs of a changing demographic. Analysing the evolving business landscape, panellists will also discuss whether Jersey has the right ingredients to maintain its appeal as a centre for international commerce in the long-term.

Coming less than six months after Jersey’s new raft of politicians have been elected, the event will also challenge panellists on Jersey’s approach to immigration control, shine a light on how public sector reform is progressing, and explore how the island might respond to pressures beyond its shores, including technology, natural resources and geopolitical shifts.

Keynote: Leo Johnson, Partner & Disruption Lead, PwC
Moderator: Alastair Stewart OBE

The event begins with a drinks reception sponsored by HSBC at 5.30pm with the Debate starting at 6.30pm. A 2 course supper will be served at 8.00pm before the Debate continues at 9.15pm followed by carriages at 10.30pm.
