Jersey's new External Relations Minister, Philip Bailhache, met French Ambassodor Bernard Emié in London on September 26, 2013 to discuss France's blacklisting of Jersey as a tax haven.
The meeting was "friendly and constructive," Mr Bailhache said.
In August France added Jersey, Bermuda and the British Virgin Islands to its list of tax havens, which currently contains 10 territories in total. France imposes tougher tax policies on territories included in its blacklist.
During a visit to Guernsey late last month Mr Emié said Jersey had been included in the blacklist due to "technical reasons."
Commenting on his meeting with the French Ambassador, Mr Bailhache said: "We discussed the technical criteria that governed the French authorities' decision to place the Island on their list of non-cooperative jurisdictions. We remain committed to resolving these issues and removing Jersey from the list as quickly as possible."
