PACT Gov’t lifts the lid on Cabinet work


Premier Wayne Panton explained that the PACT Government will now regularly publish a summary of the Cabinet meetings as part of its commitment to the ‘T’ for transparency.

“Having just presented our strategic policy directions for the next few years in Parliament, we felt it was important to take this step as quickly as possible,” he said. “This solution will allows us to inform the people of the day-to-day operations of government. The more we can be accountable to the public the better we are at transparency.”

The first of these Cabinet meeting summaries listed more than a dozen decisions, including the approval for the creation of a new Equity Investment Output and supplementary funding for the Ministry of Sustainability and Climate Resiliency, as well as the appropriations needed for many other ministries that were dealt with in Finance Committee this week.

Ministers also approved the guidelines for vaccination verification at public events and the issuance of drafting instructions to amend the Prevention, Control and Suppression of COVID-19 Regulations, for the CayMAS Carnival and the Cayman Gay Pride Parade. The order and regulations were also approved for the forthcoming national census.

Governor Martyn Roper approved the move and said it was a strong indicator of the new government’s commitment to good governance.

Officials said in a press release that summaries of decisions of a sensitive nature, matters of national security, matters where publication breaches regional or international conventions, and any matters that relate to personal privacy will not be disclosed.
