The GFSB acts on behalf of the business sector by both lobbying and supporting Government as appropriate. We also offers advisory services to members and those wishing to start a business and also promote and support business led initiatives. Members of the Board attend Government meetings and sit on many relevant Boards to ensure the rights and benefits being discussed are fair and reasonable for Gibraltar small businesses.
In addition to the commercial side, the Federation has been instigators of many social and economic functions that have considerably benefited members and non-members as well as the general public. The high profile that the Chairman and the Board have maintained has, at times, caused friction and problems with other smaller industry bodies but has shown that the Federation is a body that has the courage, conviction and following that is required to ensure level playing fields.
The membership of the European Small Business Alliance has considerably assisted the promotion of Gibraltar and its problems within the European Union whilst at the same time opening doors for business connections and information on EU legislation.
