GENERAL INFORMATION

The Channel Islands are divided into two Baliwicks; Jersey and Guernsey (which comprises the smaller islands of Alderney, Sark, Herm and Jethou). Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands and is approximately 160 kilometres south of England, but only 22 kilometres from France.

Political Structure

Historically The Channel Islands formed part of the Duchy of Normandy and have been in possession of the Crown of England since 1066 when the Duke of Normandy became King of England. When Normandy was overrun by the King of France in 1204 the Islands remained in the hands of the King of England, who continued to use the title of Duke of Normandy until 1259. Accordingly, the constitutional relationship between the Channel Islands and the United Kingdom is unique. Jersey is not part of the United Kingdom but a self-governing Crown Dependency which gives the Island constitutional rights of self government and judicial independence with political and economical stability. The Islands special relationship with the European Union was ratified by Protocol 3 of the Treaty of Accession of the United Kingdom to the European Community. Through this Protocol, Jersey complies with the European Union Directives on trade in industrial and agricultural products, but is not obliged to implement Directives or Regulations in other areas such as Taxation, Financial Services and European Monetary Union.

Infrastructure and Economy

Whilst the financial services sector provides Jersey's main source of income, the tourist industry continues to be important.

Air services from Jersey are excellent with services to London being particularly frequent. There are also flights to many European centres, including Paris and Amsterdam.
