A small delegation of United States members of Congress visited Gibraltar, including Democrat Linda Sanchez and Republican Patrick Meehan. They believe that Gibraltar will remain a very attractive place to do business after Brexit.
Sanchez said to the Gibraltar Chronicle:
“We know that Gibraltar is very resourceful at finding ways to move forward in terms of expansion, development and economic growth. We think that by creating these ties it could create some other avenues for investment here, opening up markets and strengthening those economic ties that would be beneficial not just to Gibraltar but to American businesses as well. 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. It reassures people that despite what they think or hear about our president we are very much open to trade.”
The trade visit was organised by the Gibraltar American Chamber of Commerce.
