    Background: THE GIBRALTAR MINISTER FOR TOURISM, MR.A.SERFATY, HELD A NEWS CONFERENCE AT NEW ZEALAND HOUSE IN LONDON TODAY AS PART OF A CAMPAIGN TO BOOST TOURIST ACTIVITY TO THE MEDITERRANEAN RESORT.

    MR.SERFATY TOLD NEWSMEN THAT THE OLD VISION OF GIBRALTAR AS A TRANSIT BASE FOR TRAVELLERS WAS CHANGING, AND GIBRALTAR WAS EMERGING NOW AS A SELF CONTAINED RESORT.

    HE LISTED SOME OF THE TOURIST ATTRACTIONS NOW BEING DEVELOPED AT GIBRALTAR, INCLUDING A NEW RAILWAY BEING BUILT WHICH WILL TAKE TOURISTS FROM SEA LEVEL TO THE PINNACLE OF 'THE ROCK', FROM WHERE TOURISTS CAN SEE THOUSANDS OF SQUARE MILES OF THE MEDITERRANEAN AND ATLANTIC, AND LOOK OUT ACROSS THE NARROW STRAITS TO THE AFRICAN CONTINENT.

    MR.SERFATY SAID HOLIDAY CAMPS WERE ALSO BEING DEVELOPED; FISHING CLUBS HAD BEEN ESTABLISHED, AND GIBRALTAR ALSO OFFERED TOURISTS THE ADVANTAGES OF TAX FREE SHOPPING, ENGLISH-TYPE PUBLIC HOUSES, BRITISH NEWSPAPERS AND THE FAMILIAR FIGURE OF THE BOBBY - POLICEMAN.

    HE SAID THAT GIBRALTAR ALSO WAS AIMING AT ATTRACTING A NUCLEUS OF PEOPLE WHO WANTED TO RETIRE TO A MEDITERRANEAN RESORT, AND A BLOCK OF LUXURY FLATS, OVERLOOKING THE MEDITERRANEAN, WAS NOW BEING BUILT.
