Sir Joe Bossano will be leaving this weekend for a high-level trade and investment mission to Cuba where he hopes to forge economic relationships with the country.
A statement from the Government said:
The Minister for Economic Development Sir Joe Bossano will be leaving this weekend on a trip to Cuba as part of a UK trade mission. The high-level Trade and Investment Mission to Cuba is supported by the British and Cuban governments.
The mission will be led by Lord Triesman the chairperson of Cuba Initiative an organisation that has for 25 years supported Cuba UK trade.
The trade mission strengthens UK Cuba relations following the Cuban President’s visit to London and the visit to Cuba by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales.
It is also an opportunity to explore post Brexit relationships. Gibraltar is looking to participate alongside the UK in such exploration. The trade missions are to identify potential economic relationships that could increase trade with new partners.
Sir Joe Bossano will be accompanied by Albert Poggio and will return to Gibraltar next week.
