Businesses from various economic groups voiced their concern with the Malta Chamber that the proposed Lidl Distribution Center in Malta will cause an unfair playing field. Government announced last April that the project would receive assistance from Malta Enterprise and Malta Industrial Parks.
The Malta Chamber entered discussions with the relevant authorities on the subject as it is voicing the concerns of its members.The members are contending that the proposed project will cause an unfair level playing field in the local market if Lidl would be allowed to use its Distribution Centre to also hold and distribute stocks destined for its Malta-based outlets.
The Chamber is in favour of the establishment of export-led logistic centres in Malta.
Nevertheless, it is insisting with the authorities that the project in question should not go ahead unless it can be ascertained that such a market distortion is avoided.
