The Chief Minister Fabian Picardo will be meeting with the President of the Regional Government of Andalucia Susana Diaz on 25 January in Seville.

The meeting follows a contribution from the Junta de Andalucia to a report published by the EU Committee of the Regions on the impact of the departure of the United Kingdom and Gibraltar from the European Union.

The Chief Minister wrote to the President of the Junta, as a consequence of that report, in order to have a discussion on the potential consequences of Brexit on businesses and citizens in Gibraltar and in Spain. He made the point that Gibraltar’s departure from the EU should be handled in a positive and constructive manner that creates the minimum amount of disruption.

The Governments of Gibraltar and Andalucia will explore increased cooperation with the objective of generating more economic activity and employment in a way which provides shared benefits and prosperity for all.
