GIBRALTAR has seen the opening of its own World Trade Center (WTC), a 254,000 square foot building which joins similar WTCs in 90 other countries.
This state of the art building confirms that industry and government consider that the future of Gibraltar’s business opportunities – regardless of the fact that Brexit will bring major changes – is looking good and WTC Gibraltar will be yet another beacon for the promotion of international trade.
The Chief and Deputy Ministers together with the Governor and a representative of the developers formally opened the building which is already attracting major businesses such as Regus, Bet Victor, BDO, Stan James, Unibet and Costa Coffee as well a number of start-up and medium-sized business.
With over 25 per cent of the building already occupied by companies new to Gibraltar and the fact that a number of relocations are due to take place in the coming months, the impact on employment opportunities in Gibraltar will be significant.
Chief Minister, Fabian Picardo said, “We are proud to be here today to inaugurate Gibraltar’s first World Trade Center. Brexit is not the beginning of the end of Gibraltar, it’s actually just the end of the beginning, and the arrival of this first World Trade Center is Gibraltar saying to the world: “Here we come!”’
