The Gibraltar Parliament and CPA UK work together through British Islands and Mediterranean Region of the CPA, particularly through the BIMR Chapter of Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians

Parliamentarians from Gibraltar often participate in CPA UK's multilateral events such as the Westminster Seminar on Parliamentary Practice and Procedure.
