2004 marked Gibraltar's Tercentenary year since it was ceded to the UK in August 1704. Gibraltar has been in existence as a country for longer than the nations of the United States of America, Australia and Belgium. Gibraltar has a long and proud tradition and has strong links with the Royal Navy. From the repair of Nelson's HMS Victory after the Battle of Trafalgar to modern day, Gibraltar remains a key location at the gateway to the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Ocean.
Gibraltar is the only British International Finance Centre within the European Union. Recently, direct trading on EUREX, Liffe and other exchanges has commenced from Gibraltar with Deutsche Bank and UBS Warburg also taking advantage of Gibraltar's well-regulated and organised Finance Centre.
Gibraltar has a common law framework, a highly educated workforce, and UK trained professionals. It is renowned as one of the best regulated finance centres in the world, and as such, has been held up as a benchmark jurisdiction by both the former UK Foreign Secretary Robin Cook, and by Andrew Edwards in his Review of regulation in the Crown Dependencies.
What about Spain, Gibraltar and the UK?
The Gibraltar Constitution Order of 1969 sets out the position very clearly:
"Whereas Gibraltar is part of Her Majesty's dominions and Her Majesty's Government have given assurances to the people of Gibraltar that Gibraltar will remain part of Her Majesty's dominions unless and until an Act of Parliament otherwise provides and furthermore that Her Majesty's Government will never enter into arrangements under which the people of Gibraltar would pass under the sovereignty of another state against their freely and democratically expressed wishes"
