The Falkland Islands Treasury, following the publication of the 2018/19 Government Budget in April, reminds the public of the following welfare and pension changes that will be coming into force from 1 July onwards, and some further changes that will be effective from 1 January 2019 onwards.
James Wilson is the new Financial Secretary within the Falkland Islands Government. A position some think is the equivalent to the Chancellor of the Exchequer in the UK Government. There are, however, some major differences: James is not a politician but a civil servant.
The government and treasury of the Falkland Islands have issued new coins which recognize 30 years of work conducted by the Falkland Islands Fisheries Department (FIS) to help maintain fish populations around the Islands. FIS, responsible for the sustainable development of fisheries in the Falklands, was established in 1987.
