Chambers of commerce discuss cross-frontier collaboration

The Chambers of Commerce from Gibraltar and the Campo de Gibraltar met on Tuesday to discuss matters of mutual business interests on both sides of the frontier.

The fact-finding mission, which took most of the day, saw both Chambers exchange information on their functional roles in each jurisdiction and their respective members.

Christian Hernandez, Gibraltar Chamber of Commerce President, said that he felt positive on both Chambers working together going forwards.

“Even though we have met before this is the first time that we have sat down to discuss matters of mutual interest,” he said.

“We will explore how we can work together in helping our members to conduct business on either side of the border.”

Mr Hernandez said that the Campo de Gibraltar Chamber represents a large number of businesses in the campo area and another meeting will be scheduled in the coming months.

“This was an initial fact-finding mission and we have not agreed anything yet,” he said.

“We spoke about our members and discussed some of the common problems they face as well as how the crisis in Spain has affected their members.”
