The Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry welcomes the resignation of Mr Michael Zammit Tabona from Ambassador of Finland, earlier today, following his comments on social media. Such comments do nothing but harm the country's reputation. All persons holding public office and diplomats no less, should take extra care when expressing themselves, as the country's reputation is no one's to put in compromising situations.
Good governance demands high ethical, professional and diplomatic standards from our Ambassadors. The country ought to have representatives of the highest credibility that attract strong trust levels in the interest of Malta.
