TUESDAY, OCT. 30: In the aftermath of Sandy, the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry, the Hon. Patrice Minors JP, MP, reached out to stakeholder organizations, ABIR Association of Business Insurers and Reinsurers (ABIR) and Association of Bermuda International Companies (ABIC), to determine if member companies have a need to relocate staff to Bermuda for business continuity purposes in the short-term.
 
Minister Minors said, “Our aim is to support and assist those international businesses that have a presence in Bermuda as best we can.
 
“Our proximity to the east coast makes it an obvious choice for short-term relocations where there is a need. Any work permits required will be issued immediately to ensure that we help the companies achieve their business continuity objectives.”
 
The Ministry awaits responses from the officers at ABIC and ABIR with respect to their memberships needs.
