GGR WELCOMES 'POSITIVE BUSINESS'
Equality Rights Group (GGR) has today welcomed
the recent decision taken by the La Linea local government to officially
declare La Linea a gay tolerant city.
Spanish, this carries the implication of acceptance of diversity perhaps more
so than in English. The point is that with this unanimous and cross-party
Motion being moved and approved, La Linea is signalling and opening the door to
new commercial and employment opportunities in not only tourism and
entertainment but in the wider marketplace. There is no reason at all why a new
environment of Equality should not also present Commerce with opportunity.
we are also now looking forward to the launch very soon of Gibraltar's own
independent initiative, too,' the statement continued. Chairman Felix Alvarez
went on to reveal that GGR has recently approved the establishment of an
independent Gibraltar initiative to be run by local entrepreneurs and to be
known as 'Positive Business'.
welcomes this independent initiative which aims to bring niche commercial
opportunities to Gibraltar's business sector, with the core aim of assisting
the business community identify and best approach the new consumer trends -
both local and foreign - and thus contribute to the Rock's economy.'
