US trade visitUS congress members have predicted a strong future relationship with Gibraltar.

During a third trade visit, Democrat congresswoman Linda Sanchez and Republican Patrick Meehan described the territory as an ‘attractive place to do business’, despite the implications of Brexit.

“We know that Gibraltar is very resourceful at finding ways to move forward in terms of expansion, development and economic growth,” said Sanchez.

The politician hopes that strengthening economic ties will be beneficial to both parties.
She continued: “We have a president who creates a little bit of concern abroad and so when members of Congress can come and reassure folk that we are still very much interested in the economy and trade.”

The trade visit was organised by the Gibraltar American Chamber of Commerce and included workshops and presentations to help create ties between US and Gibraltarian businesses.
