On other matters, the trade union and business organisations that compose the Group were unanimous in expressing their concern regarding the progress in the negotiations in reaching a final agreement that will set out the framework that will govern the post Brexit relationship in respect of Gibraltar.
In this regard, the socioeconomic representatives from both sides of the frontier appealed to the parties that they facilitate an agreement that responds to the needs, aspirations and concerns of the citizens and businesses in the area.
It was agreed at the meeting that a letter would be drafted and addressed to all the parties in the negotiation process; the European Union, the British Government, the Government of Spain and the Government of Gibraltar, which conveys the position and concerns of the Cross Frontier Group and which urges them to reach a satisfactory Agreement.
