Gibraltar Annex to Withdrawal Agreement

However, the terms of the special deal will need to be analysed quickly if the position is to be adopted; the agreement talks are thought to be closing in on the completion stage.

Chief among the points Spain wishes to address are environmental regulations, tax evasion, tobacco smuggling and, of particular interest to Gibraltar wealth management clients, the status of cross-border workers. Spanish newspaper El Pais reports that Spain is actually seeking an annex to the wider agreement that addresses these particular issues.

Michel Barnier, the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator, recently held talks with the Spanish prime minister, Pedro Sanchez, and stated his “full support” for Spain in its attempts to ensure that Gibraltar-related issues were addressed in the Withdrawal Agreement.

Ashley Fox, a Gibraltar MEP, told tabloid the Sun, “So long as talks continue in goodwill and respect the Rock’s sovereignty we can reach a deal on time that will benefit both Spain and Gibraltar.”
