QUAD ISLAND FORUM

The Financial Intelligence Units (FIUs) from Gibraltar, Guernsey, Isle of Man and Jersey under the Quad Island Forum recently met in London at Gibraltar House. It forms part of the participants’ ongoing commitment to further develop the Quad Island Forum and extend to other authorities with responsibilities for financial crime.

The three day meetings included the participation of the Economic Crime and Confiscation Unit from Jersey and the Isle of Man Proactive International Money Laundering Investigation Team to focus on exchanging best practices in preparation for upcoming Moneyval assessments.

An additional initiative has been undertaken, encompassing a distinct subgroup that integrates the Tax authorities from the four jurisdictions. The aim is to enhance collaboration between tax authorities and FIUs in order to combat serious tax-related crimes and sophisticated tax fraud schemes that yield substantial illicit gains.

During the meeting, participants deliberated on strategic objectives, fostering effective cooperation, exploring training opportunities, sharing best practices for accessing tax data, addressing legal challenges, resources and information technology.

MWG2023 – Maritime week Gibraltar

Minster for the Port, the Hon Vijay Daryanani MP, recently opened Maritime Week Gibraltar at the Sunborn Hotel.

This is the third conference after its launch in June 2019 and will see people attending from Singapore, Maldives, Malta and other maritime jurisdictions.

The Minister spoke of Gibraltar’s strategic location, the importance of the maritime industry and our maritime heritage.

Minister Daryanani commented, “Gibraltar is a bustling maritime hub and after the Pandemic it is crucial that we promote our Port and all the services related to the maritime sector. Maritime Week serves as the perfect platform for us to recognize the invaluable contributions made by the maritime industry to our local economy and the global trade network.”


Fiesta de Fitness

A new one and a half day fitness event is coming to Europa Sports Complex Gibraltar later this year – on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th September.

It’s the first event of its kind in Gibraltar with twelve international presenters who have worked with the likes of Beyoncé, Britney Spears, Premier League football clubs, and Davina McCall, collaborating with local Gibraltar professionals.

Profits from the event will be donated to Gibraltar Alzheimers and Dementia Society.

The organisers are expecting circa 300 local and international attendees. It’s modelled on the annual International Fitness Showcase held in Blackpool which attracts  around 6000 people. It’s hoped that the September event will replicate this and benefit Gibraltar’s local businesses community. 

Tickets are available from buytickets.gi or fiestadefitness.co.uk
