CLOSER LINKS BETWEEN GUERNSEY AND GIBRALTAR
Guernsey’s Culture & Leisure Minister, Deputy Mike O’Hara, called on the Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister today.
Deputy O’Hara travelled to Gibraltar as the Regional Representative of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association’s British Islands and Mediterranean region.
Deputy O’Hara said:
‘The meeting with the Chief Minister was an opportunity to combine the work of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association with the building of links between Guernsey and Gibraltar.
‘I was also able to hand the Chief Minister a letter from our new Chief Minister and to discuss where, in the future, there might be opportunities for stronger dialogue between our jurisdictions.’
Mr Picardo said:
‘I was extremely pleased to welcome Deputy O’Hara to Gibraltar and to thank him for his work as the Regional Representative of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association. Guernsey and Gibraltar have a great deal in common so today’s meeting was an ideal opportunity to discuss several matters of mutual interest.’
