A new business section dedicated to the growing sector of Logistics was set up within the Malta Chamber of Commerce, with the election for the executive committee taking place on Tuesday 23rd August.
In a statement to the media, the Chamber said that with the setting up of this Business Section, the Chamber was once again being proactive in representing a previously underserved sector, in terms of giving it a unified voice to propose ideas and solutions for structured growth.
“The Logistics business has been registering a steady interest recently, and it was given due attention in the Chamber’s Economic Vision for Malta 2014-2020 and subsequently in EY’s document outlining sectors for growth this year” the Chamber said.
The same proposals for the sector where followed up by concrete statements by the Prime Minister as well as the Leader of the Opposition towards supporting the development of the sector during an event co-organised by the Malta Chamber and EY at the Exchange Buildings.
Mr. Robert C Aquilina, Chairman of the new committee said that Malta was experiencing an unprecedented growth in the sector, which underlined the timeliness of setting up such a committee.
“I am happy to once again be of service to the business community as Chairman of this committee within the Malta Chamber. I intend to lead the vastly experienced members of the committee for the benefit of the sector and the Maltese economy in general” said Mr Aquilina.
The five-member committee is composed of Mr. Robert C Aquilina (Salvo Grima Group) as Chairman, Mr. David Fleri Soler (Express Trailers Ltd) as Deputy Chairman, and Mr. Hugh Arrigo (Attard & Co Industrial Ltd), Mr. Pierre Attard (CMA CGM Malta Agency Ltd) and Mr. Ronald Attard (EY) as members.
