Picardo highlights border fluidity in Cadena Ser interview
Chief Minister Fabian Picardo has highlighted the importance of ensuring cross-border fluidity after Brexit.
Mr Picardo was interviewed by Aimar Bretos on the current affairs programme Hora 25, on Monday night, where the pair discussed Gibraltarâ€™s future outside of the European Union.
Ensuring cross-border fluidity in a post-Brexit era was focused on in the interview, with Mr Picardo stating he has proposed an agreement that allows the â€śmaximum level of cross-border movement.â€ť
He added the proposed agreement would include â€śeven fewer obstaclesâ€ť than there may be today.
â€śBut the details of that still have to be assessed and agreed upon,â€ť Mr Picardo said.
The agreement would have to be made between London, Madrid, Gibraltar and Brussels to come to fruition.
â€śWe do seek an agreement with the Schengen area, and that is a possibility, which, if it is feasible, and that still needs to be determined, I think it would be positive for the entire zone.â€ť
Mr Picardo added that if Gibraltar and Spain cooperated and internationally marketed the Campo de Gibraltar and Gibraltar, the area would have prospered even more financially.
â€śIf we had been using our energies together, we would have created those 100,000 jobs,â€ť he said.
With just over four months left until Brexit day on January 1, Mr Picardo added there is still a chance of a Brexit agreement between the UK and the EU, although it would likely not be as ambitious as he would have liked it to be.
