  • International Tax Planning Association Journal – Madrid 19-20 March 2012 – Vol XII Number 3

    When we talk about Gibraltar and the EU perspective, we really are talking about a defining element of what has been driving Gibraltar over the last twenty-five or thirty years. Our membership of the European Union is not something that has been incidental and has not had a dramatic impact on Gibraltar; it has been very important in the direction that Gibraltar has taken over that period of time. Gibraltar - as you know - is attached to Southern Spain. Gibraltar and its position in the European Union is quite a fascinating study and a fascinating situation to explain.
