They are being organised by the Institute of Directors and Heritage Insurance Brokers because of the significance locally of such issues, including wealth creation, entrepreneurship and employment and skills.

The lunchtime series, which Heritage Insurance is sponsoring for a further two years, starts on Friday 12 February with Treasury and Resources minister Gavin St Pier updating the business community on the island’s economic performance and his vision for the States for the next 10 years.

The lunches are held on Fridays over eight months and are expected to include a States departmental president, newly elected under the revised system of government.
