Business Minister meets Boris Johnson-Gibraltar to be represented at a meeting of the Commonwealth Youth Forum in Rwanda

The Prime Minister has asked after Gibraltar when he met the Minister for Business and Tourism, Vijay Daryanani at a reception to mark the 2022 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting at No 10 Downing Street.

Mr Daryanani reiterates that in this new Brexit era, it's important to look at business opportunities within the Commonwealth and strengthen our links with them.

Meanwhile, Adriana Lopez and Chris Cardona will represent Gibraltar at a meeting of the Commonwealth Youth Forum which takes place next month in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda.

The Forum is one of a number of events planned to take place around the meeting of Commonwealth Heads of Government.

It will take place from the 18th to the 21st of June under the theme “Taking charge of our future.” There are 1.2 billion young people in the Commonwealth, making up around 60% of the population. The three day event will bring together 350 delegates from all over the Commonwealth. They will work on a Youth Declaration and Action Plan and will present their recommendations to the Heads of Government and other stakeholders.

Deputy Chief Minister Joseph Garcia says Gibraltar has always been proud of its links with the Commonwealth family of nations with this providing an opportunity to cement those links further still.
