The Overseas Territories are an integral part of the British family. In addition to our ongoing support, visits by the UK Government reaffirms the unique bond between the UK and the Overseas Territories. This year I [Minister Rutley] as Minister for Overseas Territories visited the British Virgin Islands, the British Antarctic Territory, the Falkland Islands and Ascension Island. The Foreign Secretary in his visit to the Falkland Islands also saw first-hand the positive impacts of UK and Overseas Territories partnership, and the modern, prosperous community the Islanders have built. We look forward to further engagement with the Territories including during the development of the UK strategy for the Overseas Territories and future visits to the Territories. The FCDO will confirm specific visits in due course in the usual manner.
