Jersey's Chief Minister is in France to develop links between the island and Brittany and Normandy.

Senator Terry Le Sueur will go to the Regional Council of Lower Normandy and meeting dignitaries from the area.

Joining the Senator are representatives from the Airport, Education Sport and Culture, Tourism and the finance industry.

Senator Le Sueur said these visits were very important and he wanted to expand Jersey's relationship with France.
