OBR CG 2014

A transformational leader, that is what Mr Kieran HOLMES, the outgoing Commissioner General appears to be, after listening to the presentation he gave at his last press conference.

Assisted by the OBR Senior Management Team, the OBR Commissioner General started by giving a short presentation on what OBR has achieved since its inception to date both in terms of revenue collection and various other reforms introduced to facilitate trade. He added that when he joined OBR in June 2010, the administration had almost nothing by way of resources. There were no staff (only the executive and senior management team was appointed), a lot of corruption within the institution, most of the OBR activities were manual, there was significant resistance to change, no collaboration with the private sector and service delivery was extremely poor.
