This chapter describes events that took place between January and February 1989. These include Joe Bossano's first official visit to La Línea on 10 and 11 January; and Sir Geoffrey Howe' visit to Gibraltar on 30 January, his first since Bossano's election victory in March 1988. The chapter discusses Bosanno's strategy, which was to seek economic independence for Gibraltar as a means of maintaining political independence. He also refused to participate in the annual round of talks between the British and Spanish Foreign Ministers, in order to indicate his rejection of the Brussels Declaration.

Keywords:   Joe Bossano, Geoffrey Howe, political independence, economic independence, Brussels Declaration
