UK Minister for Overseas Territories begins four day visit to TCI

United Kingdom Minister for the Overseas Territories David Rutley has started his four-day visit to the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Rutley arrived in Providenciales yesterday, and Governor Dileeni Daniel-Selvaratnam greeted him at the international airport.

The minister joined Daniel-Selvaratnam and Premier Washington Misick for dinner last evening.

Rutley began his full first day in the TCI with a visit to the Maritime Branch.

In a social media post, the Governor’s Office said Rutley, Daniel-Selvaratnam and Misick boarded a Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force maritime vessel at the South Dock Port.

“Minister Rutley met the marine officers who led on intercept operations and received a briefing from border security leads on the process for landing migrants following interceptions,” the Governor’s Office stated.

He also visited the Radar and Maritime Operations Centre, where he discussed multi-agency operations to develop marine domain awareness further.

This is Rutley's first visit to an overseas territory as a minister.
