The roadmap for the improvement of Main Street continues apace as the Minister for Business met with the Gibraltar Federation of Small Businesses and international specialists, The Mosaic Partnership as part of the ongoing progress and implementation of a Business Improvement District (BID).
It’s envisaged that the implementation of a BID will enhance the trading relationship between businesses and customers as well add further aesthetic improvements to Gibraltar’s world-famous trading district.
The Minister for Business, the Hon. Vijay Daryanani said, “The Government fully supports this initiative by the GFSB to enhance and fulfil the potential that we all believe Main Street can enjoy as an international shopping area for locals and visitors. As we have previously mentioned, the Government is financially committed to supporting this project on a pound for pound basis.”
Julian Byrne, Chairperson of the GFSB added, “We are very excited to see the positive progress that is being made towards creating the Main Street BID. The GFSB are very grateful to the Government for their support from day one, both financially, plus also in the time and effort dedicated to it. Having a Minister of Business who has a great deal of experience in Main Street has been incredibly beneficial to this whole project. This meeting is one of many as we push forward to make the Main Street BID a reality, which will be beneficial for business owners, the Government, tourists and locals too.”
