The Gibraltar Government has signed a new memorandum of understanding with companies and individuals engaged in trade and investment in Spain, and vice versa, to cooperate on ensuring a workable border post-Brexit.
The Cross Frontier Group, which signed the agreement with the Gibraltar Government, represents unions and business organizations in both Gibraltar and the Campo region of Spain. They are seeking to secure the free movement of goods and people, despite strained relations between Spain and Gibraltar. Over 10,000 Spanish workers and 2,000 other European workers cross the border to work in Gibraltar, and Gibraltar supports one in every six jobs in the Campo region.
The common aim of the cooperation deal is to facilitate and promote growth in the economies of Gibraltar and the Campo and ensure a fluid frontier.
