News on 5 Feb 2019

An agreement has been reached at the eighth meeting of the joint Ministerial Council between the United Kingdom and Gibraltar across a number of sectors following Britain’s exit from the European Union (BREXIT).

The meeting, attended by five UK ministers, agreed cooperation in the gambling, environmental and transport sectors, among others.

Minister of the Department for Exiting the European Union (DExEU) – Robin Walker:

“Today was another opportunity to ensure the close UK-Gibraltar ties can move from strength to strength outside the EU.

“This positive and constructive meeting was marked by further progress including confirming that the Gibraltar Protocol and accompanying MOUs protect Gibraltar’s interests, and should form the basis of the way forward in securing an EU Exit that works for Gibraltar.”

The Minister for Sport and Civil Society, Mims Davies, announced the conclusion of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to enable closer working between gambling regulators in Great Britain and Gibraltar, building on the commitment that gambling operators based in Gibraltar will continue to access the UK market after we leave the EU in the same way they do now.
