We welcome today’s statement by the Government of Gibraltar. Our organisation and members have been co-ordinating closely with Minister Isola and his team in order to ensure we work together in this period of uncertainty.
As an organisation the GBGA supported the Remain campaign. However, we respect the fact that the recent referendum highlighted obvious concerns UK citizens have in the EU political establishment and project.
At the moment and for the foreseeable future there is no change to the existing legal and political framework that our operators work within. We also note that European countries already have widely different regulatory regimes and many require our operators to have local licences – the impact on our members is therefore likely to be minimal.
Periods of wide-spread political uncertainty highlight the need to be based in a territory that supports your business and sector at the highest level. We have a very supportive government and regulators. We have access to a wealth of human talent and experience in online betting and gaming. The UK and EU political crisis makes us keenly aware why Gibraltar remains a great place to do European and international trade.
