Franco will discuss cross-border cooperation with the Chief Minister Fabian Picardo.

Since taking office in June, Franco has publicised his intentions to improve relations between La Linea and Gibraltar.

Following a car crash in June of a van containing Gibraltar football fans on their way back from Germany, Franco reached out to the Gibraltar government to offer support.

There have also been suggestions of Gibraltar and La Linea unifying, which received 60% of Olive Press reader support following a poll.
