It is not just Northern Ireland where the Brexit borders issue gets more complicated

Ministers have held the second meeting of the Joint Ministerial Committee (Gibraltar EU Negotiations) to discuss Gibraltar’s priorities as we prepare to exit the European Union.

Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory with a population of over 32,000. In 2015/16, its GDP was forecast to be £1.77bn. Its main industries are tourism, financial services, online gaming, shipping and construction.  The discussions centred around the opportunities & challenges in areas such as trade and market access, with ministers in agreement that we must ensure Gibraltar’s interests are taken into account.
