FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ON THE REFERENDUM RESULTS IN THE UNITED KINGDOM
24 June 2016
The voters in the United Kingdom (UK) chose last evening to exit the European Union (EU) following a referendum. The Bahamas has deep and historic ties with both the UK and the EU, where we share mutual interests in areas such as trade, economics, education, health, tourism and security.
The Bahamas is fully confident that these relations will continue in the near term. We have received assurances on that issue in a note to The Bahamas’ Foreign Minister Fred Mitchell and received today from the High Commissioner to The Bahamas David Fitton. Prime Minister David Cameron has chosen to step down from his post in the aftermath of the vote.
The Government takes this opportunity to thank him for the fruitful collaboration The Bahamas has had with him and his Government. The Ministry will keep the public informed as developments ensue.
