British Virgin Islands: Upcoming conference on competitiveness to discuss future of financial sector

Tomorrow, January 15th 2014, the fourth annual BVI Business Outlook conference will look at the competitiveness of the BVI’s economy, reports the BVI Beacon.

With the theme “Taking our game to the next level”, speakers include the premiers of BVI and Bermuda, the chief minister of Gibraltar and representatives of KPMG and PWC, as well as a PR specialist who works in “media choreography”.

A look at the conference program shows that there will be sessions on financial services, tourism, public-private partnerships, education and training, and “smart government”.

Another website has detail on the topics to be covered in the financial services session:

  • Global Wealth Management – New opportunity?
  • Doubling Down on Asia
  • Emerging Markets
  • Cybersecurity – Lessons from the DATA DUMP (almost certainly a reference to Offshore Leaks)
  • Global Regulatory Changes – Keeping Up

Richard Branson was a keynote speaker at a former Business Outlook conference.
