Two Gibraltarians have been granted awards in the King’s New Year's Honours List: Rosemarie Suissa, who is the manager of the Primary Care Centre, is to receive an OBE and Daniel D’Amato, Gibraltar’s representative in Brussels, an MBE.

In a press release congratulating the two recipients, the Gibraltar government explained that Daniel D’Amato took over the Brussels office at a challenging time, not least because of Brexit and its related difficulties, and has been working closely with the Attorney General, Chief Minister and Deputy Minister on the negotiations for Gibraltar’s future relationship with the EU.
