Burrell said: ‘It was indeed an honour to have been invited by the Honourable McKeeva Bush to be a part of this historic moment for the Cayman Islands. I wish for the him, his ministers and administrators profound success in all areas of the governing of this beautiful Cayman Islands.’

‘I also use this opportunity to further strengthen the ties between Jamaica and the Cayman Islands in my efforts to continue to help in the development of business and sports on the island.’
