Picardo highlights continued business confidence in Gibraltar despite Brexit
Chief Minister Fabian Picardo last night delivered a bullish assessment of Gibraltar’s economic performance since the referendum on EU membership last June, highlighting continued business confidence in the Rock despite the uncertainty of Brexit.
Addressing business leaders at a dinner organised by the Gibraltar Chamber of Commerce, Mr Picardo said the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission had issued 21 licences since the referendum vote and had another 22 in the pipeline.
