On Wednesday, EU ambassadors judged that the islands in the western Caribbean Sea are not effectively cooperating with Brussels on financial transparency, the Financial Times reported.

The Cayman Islands will join Fiji, Oman, Samoa, Trinidad and Tobago, Vanuatu and the three US territories of American Samoa, Guam, and the US Virgin Islands, on the “non-cooperative” list.

I know for sure that they are officially scared to death about the Singapore-on-Thames idea. They're starting to have fear about their money hidden in Lux and Netherlands...

In other words, they signed the CRS and CBC contracts and did nothing? So, the blacklist is a whitelist for us.
"“The economic substance rules are an attempt by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and the EU to strong-arm minor jurisdictions that often have a significant role in world finance. Is this a ploy to drive business to Luxembourg, or just post-Brexit spite?”

They are just doing it to "keep UK in line". They fear UK will become on giant tax haven outside the EU zone and fuck the rest of them. Add on UK is run by the con party, which usually are low tax regime parties, then I can see why EU is doing this, to spite UK, try to drive buinesses to EU zone, etc.
