Gibraltar is a peninsula at the southern tip of Spain with an area of approximately 7 sq km. It is adjacent to Africa yet within Europe, and has an historically strategic position at the junction of the Atlantic and the Mediterranean.
The population of Gibraltar is approximately 30,000 although a substantial number of the working population commutes daily from homes nearby in Spain. A number of Moroccan, British and Indian expatriates live in Gibraltar.
Gibraltar is a British Dependent Territory and is a Crown Colony with internal self-government. It has its own elected House of Assembly, which legislates on domestic matters. The United Kingdom is responsible for defence, foreign affairs, financial stability and internal security. Gibraltar is a member of the European Union by virtue of Article 227 paragraph 4 of the Treaty of Rome in its capacity as a territory for whose external relations a Member State (the United Kingdom) is responsible. Gibraltar enjoys special status within the Community and is exempted from the Common Customs Tariff, the Common Agricultural Policy and Value Added Taxation. Gibraltar is politically stable and the current Government actively promotes Gibraltar as a first-class international financial centre.
Since the opening of the border with Spain in 1985, the level of tourism and investment has increased dramatically. Several international banks and insurance companies have offices in Gibraltar. Gibraltar has excellent modern postal and telecommunications systems. Thanks to a joint venture between the Gibraltar Government and the Nynex Corporation of the USA, Gibraltar enjoys the latest in digital and fibre-optic telecommunications. There are daily flights between Gibraltar and London and frequent scheduled air services to Manchester, Luton and Tangier. Although it is not at present possible to fly direct from Gibraltar to Spain and other destinations the airports at Seville, Jerez and Malaga can easily be reached by road and provide direct services to many international destinations. The Port of Gibraltar enjoys free port status and hosts frequent calls from many of the world's shipping lines, both passenger and freight.
The official and spoken language is English although because of Gibraltar's close proximity to Spain, Spanish is spoken widely.
