Sir Bob Neill MP Visits The Rock
The Chair of the Gibraltar Group in Parliament Sir Bob Neill MP recently met the Chief Minister and the Deputy Chief Minister at No 6 Convent Place. He was accompanied by UK Representative Dominique Searle.
This provided an opportunity for Sir Bob to be updated on the ongoing negotiations for the future relationship of Gibraltar with the European Union and other matters of importance.
The meeting took place following the latest public health guidance.
The Chief Minister, the Hon Fabian Picardo QC MP, said, “It is great to be able to see Sir Bob back on the Rock as the COVID pandemic starts to recede and travel becomes easier.
He is the staunchest supporter of the rights of the People of Gibraltar and, apart from that, also a dear friend of Gibraltar who has the ability to understand the complexity of the some of the issues we face and advocate powerfully alongside us in Westminster on any and all matters.
The fact that he is a highly regarded member of the governing party lends credibility to any argument he puts forward and that is to our collective benefit! I was therefore very pleased to welcome Sir Bob back to Gibraltar after such a long, COVID induced, absence.”
BID LAUNCH FINALISED
The Minister for Business, Hon Vijay Daryanani, has met with the Business Improvement District (BID) task group to finalise the official launch of the project, which will take place in March.
The discussions focused on how the BID would be launched, the legal requirements and what events were being planned during this first year.
Minister Daryanani commented, “Hopefully we are now starting to come out of the pandemic and it couldn’t be a better time to relaunch Gibraltar as a tourist destination. Our businesses have suffered immensely and are looking for a respite from these difficult times. The BID project will bring life to the town centre for tourists and locals alike.
We need to keep people in Main Street and the surrounds. This will bring optimism and confidence to our small business sector and I am excited to be working with this energetic and enthusiast task force team to help them bring them the much needed success they deserve.”
