Visit Jersey’s arrangements for corporate governance and performance are generally well developed according to Comptroller and Auditor General. The report, published on 06 December, is an important piece of work that provides comfort to the States of Jersey that a robust infrastructure is in place for delivering the Island’s collective tourism aspirations.
Valuable recommendations are outlined within the report as to how we can continue to develop and maintain a proactive, confident and compliant working relationship between the States of Jersey and Visit Jersey.
The report highlights Visit Jersey has developed a structured approach to how it runs its business and recognises the progress that has already been made since the previous C&AG report (2017 Oversight of Arm’s Length Organisations). At Visit Jersey, we take our responsibility seriously and recognise that every pound we spend is coming directly from the taxpayer. It is vital that we have an approach that ensures government’s objectives are being met and we continue to deliver value for money. Visit Jersey is an organisation keen to learn and is always looking to improve and we welcome the report.
