The premier, Deputy Premier Moses Kirkconnell and other ministers were expected to continue the talks initiated by their recent visit to Honduras. 

“This visit reinforces the friendship between our two countries and affirms the importance accorded by the Cayman Islands and Honduras to strengthening bilateral opportunities for cooperation,” McLaughlin said in a release ahead of the visit.

Discussions were expected to focus on furthering opportunities for trade and commerce as well as what officials said were “other mutually beneficial initiatives”.

Kirkconnell said the government appreciates the visit coming so soon after the Cayman Islands initial visit to Honduras. “Though this visit will be brief we look forward to extending our unique brand of Caymankindness to the president and his delegation.”

Hernandez will also visit with Cayman Islands Governor Helen Kilpatrick, as all international relations between Cayman and other nation states are still part of the UK’s responsibility.
