At its foot is a densely populated city area, home to over 30,000 Gibraltarians and other nationalities. 12 000 foreign workers are employed there – 72 of them are Bulgarians. Together with their University`s Chancellor we talked about some possibilities for partnership with their future colleagues.
I met with the leader of the Moroccan community. Gibraltar is an example of ethnic and religious tolerance. Moreover church and mosque are located opposite each other, and midway between them is the University”, Ilhan Kyuchyuk said.
