The Government welcomed and hosted a technical team of officials from the European Commission to Gibraltar this morning.
The visit came as part of the ongoing negotiations for the future relationship of Gibraltar with the European Union. The delegation were shown the air terminal, the border, the port and the geographical layout from the top of the Rock itself.
The objective was to provide the EU visitors with a better understanding of the situation on the ground in the context of the removal of controls at the land border and the creation of a bespoke common travel area between Gibraltar and Schengen. The visit was positive and constructive and served to answer a number of logistical questions arising in the discussions to date.
The Government remains fully committed to a treaty outcome based on the New Year’s Eve agreement which was concluded together with the United Kingdom and Spain on 31 December 2020.
