Deputy Chief Minister looks at Gibraltar's strategic political situation in budget speech

The Deputy Chief Minister says the Government wants to ensure that while Gibraltar always remains supportive of the UK's strategic objectives, it never becomes a tradeable commodity in the wider game. 

In his budget speech, Joseph Garcia praised the work done by representatives of the Rock in London, Washington and in particular Brussels, stating that the Gibraltar office there has already mapped out potential supporters and opponents among the newly elected MEPs. 

Dr Garcia also emphasised the importance of monitoring the foreign policies of Spain and the UK.
