Initially many in Gibraltar were fearful about Brexit. That fear has so far not been justified and Gibraltarians are beginning to feel more optimistic about business and wider opportunities in the world. The Chief Minister said “We have lifted our spirits. We have started to look beyond Brexit”. Many companies in Gibraltar do most of their business with the UK, so this is unaffected by Brexit. Other companies which do a lot of business in the EU think it will be easy to tackle if single market access is not good enough post-Brexit.
