A new resident representative from the Department for International Development (DfID), Morgan Riley (photo attached), will be arriving to the Island on Tuesday 17 June 2014. Morgan succeeds previous resident representative Eddie Palmer and will be on Island for the next two years working closely with SHG to support the Island’s preparations for the opening of the Airport.
“I am delighted to have the opportunity to work on the Island. I visited St Helena many years ago when the Airport was just an aspiration. I understand that thanks to a huge team effort the Airport project and all the preparations for its opening are progressing well and I am very much looking forward to working with all stakeholders during such an important chapter in the Island’s long and distinguished history.”
Prior to his appointment, Morgan has worked at HM Treasury on economic development in the Middle East and North Africa and on international finance. Previously, he has worked in the private sector on development programmes for remote communities.
