The event took the format of an open conversation between Richard J. Hay and James Quarmby entitled “Offshore Centres: Good for all not just the privileged few”. In light of key issues currently affecting the offshore industry, Richard and James discussed how international offshore centres – such as Bermuda – can increase global trade, reduce poverty and inequality, and protect our communities.
