During the cordial meeting, both sides promised to collaborate closely for the long-term benefit of Malta’s business sector and the economy at large.
During the meeting, Perit Xuereb informed the Prime Minister of the Chamber’s work on a second Economic Vision for Malta - this time for 2021 and beyond.
