1,000 people attend Government conference

Fri, 23 Sep 2022

The inaugural Manx Government Conference drew more than 1,000 people through the doors of the Villa Marina in Douglas on Tuesday and Wednesday.

A range of presentations, panel discussions and question-and-answer sessions took place over the two days, enabling the event to fully live up to its billing as an opportunity for the Manx public to engage with political representatives on the big issues important to the future of our Island.

The main focus of the event was the Royal Hall, where Chief Minister Alfred Cannan MHK set the tone at the start of day one by delivering a key note speech on the 10-year Economic Strategy.

Reflecting on the event, the Chief Minister said: ‘I’d like to sincerely thank everyone who attended and participated in the conference for their contributions. The Council of Ministers recognises and values the importance of collaborating in different ways as we progress with Our Island Plan, and this event marks an important development as it’s something that’s not been tried before."
