As you may be aware I am off island at the moment. Claire Howlett from the Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities, will be on Christmas Island from 1 January until 18 January 2019 and will be Acting Administrator for both Christmas and Cocos (Keeling) Islands for the period 10 January until I return from overseas on Saturday 19 January 2019.
Claire will be working out of my office while she is on Island. I would encourage you to take up the opportunities to make yourself known to her while she is on island.
Paul and I would like to thank you all for your support throughout the year and acknowledge the incredible amount of planning work that has occurred during 2018. Our wish for 2019 is that Christmas Island and the Cocos (Keeling) Islands prosper, our people are safe, healthy, happy and energised for an exciting year full of opportunities.
If you are celebrating New Year’s Eve tonight please stay safe and don’t drink and drive.
