The Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry congratulates Dr Robert Abela on his election as Leader of Partit Laburista.
The Chamber, speaks on behalf of all honest businesses and entrepreneurs when it says that it looks forward to the country turning over a fresh page, as soon as possible. Malta’s new Prime Minister has a tall order ahead of him, as he is expected to launch a comprehensive process for a thorough clean up, and subsequent strengthening of the country’s structures. Only then will the country start re-building its international reputation as a worthy partner for business at a global scale. This reputation is currently in tatters as ethical business is paying the price of other people’s abuse.
The Chamber looks forward to an early meeting with the Prime Minister this week, during which it plans to present Dr Abela with a document, which was endorsed by the Chamber Council, and proposes 65 concrete recommendations aimed at solving the country’s problems with Good Governance.
Among the proposals made in the document, the Chamber calls for the appointment of a Minister for Good Governance in the new cabinet who would ensure standards in public office, promote Good Governance, ensure the proper functioning of rule of law and implement the major reforms the country requires at present.
