The Minister for Business, the Hon Vijay Daryanani MP, has today met with the BID task force group, led by Mr Mo Aswat of the Mosaic Partnership.
This is the first time that Minister Daryanani has met with the group since the Business Improvement Districts Bill was passed in Parliament.
Minister Daryanani said: “I am delighted to welcome Mr Aswat back to Gibraltar to finalize the arrangements for the BID. It is good news that the legislation is now in place. I took this opportunity to give a short overview on how the Government has been working on helping our small business sector during the pandemic and how we had been successful in attracting tourists to Gibraltar for the summer. We also discussed time frames for the ballot to occur. Businesses want to know when this will happen and I reassured them that they can count on the Government’s support on making this project a huge success. As Minster for Business, it is heart breaking to see our people suffer and I will give it my all to get our economy back on the road to recovery”.
