Talks in London continue following Theresa May's statement

gibraltar. British prime minister Theresa May outlined her basic plan for Brexit on Tuesday, and the Gibraltar government's reaction was that the content of her speech came as no surprise and that Gibraltar is well prepared to face whatever challenges her 'hard Brexit' will bring.

On Wednesday, chief minister Fabian Picardo and deputy chief minister Dr Joseph García flew to London for further talks with the UK government about a number of matters, including the process of leaving the EU.

The Gibraltar government is determined that the needs and concerns of Gibraltar are fully understood in London, and Mr Picardo had reassuring words in a statement released after May's speech, saying, "We are seeing that there are many positive pathways and routes through the areas of concern which can arise from Brexit and it is clear that Gibraltar is likely to continue to do well in the future because we have understood those potential pitfalls and prepared for them."
