Spain’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, Arancha González Laya, will visit the Campo de Gibraltar for a two-day visit next week.

The minister will arrive in the Campo on Wednesday afternoon and will hold a series of meetings with Campo mayors and officials.

Her first meetings will be in La Linea on Wednesday, followed by further meetings on Thursday in Algeciras including in the Mancomunidad de Municipios.

Mrs González Laya had signalled during a breakfast meeting earlier this month that she would “soon” visit the Campo de Gibraltar against the backdrop of negotiations over Gibraltar’s post-Brexit relations with Spain and the EU, which she said should be “as wide as possible”.

At the time, Ms González Laya said she would deliver “a clear message” on the Spanish Government’s “strong commitment” to the Campo, which she described as a region “with enormous potential that we want to support in a robust and resolved manner”.
