Gibraltar delegation visits Brussels

The Gibraltar delegation in Brussels.

A GIBRALTAR delegation consisting of the Chief Minister, the Hon Fabian Picardo and Deputy Chief Minister, Dr Joseph Garcia, left Gibraltar on Monday, May 23 for a two-day visit to Brussels, where they were to hold various meetings with Members of the European Parliament and senior officials at the European Commission. 

Although this visit comes at a crucial time with Britain’s EU Referendum only a month away, it was unfortunate that it coincided with a major protest in the streets of Brussels on May 24, which left a number of people injured with several arrests. 

The President of the European Commission, Mr Jean-Claude Juncker has sent his best wishes to the Chief Minister for a successful trip to Brussels. Dr Garcia, who is the Minister for Europe, will travelled to Brussels via London, as he was to address a distinguished audience at the National Liberal Club on the Monday evening.


In the absence of Mr Picardo and Dr Garcia, the Acting Chief Minister will be the Hon Samantha Sacramento.
