The Chamber welcomed the reasoning behind the creation of this authority, not least, because the construction and building industries are a crucial segment of the economy which require one focal point acting as a regulator to this industry.

"From the onset, the establishment of this new authority promises to increase the quality and standards in this sector by having simplification and codification of the fragmented enacted legislation" the Chamber said.

"It is essential that the new regulator has a research, educative and training arm within its structures which will in turn assist the industry to further modernise and innovate its current work practices and materials and technology used in construction. The future proofing of the industry will also require that an element of forecasting the needs and skills required in the years to come. Learning from what other countries are doing can go a long way in helping us achieve this aim" the statement noted.

In the Press Release, the Malta Chamber said that it would be providing more extensive feedback in the coming weeks, as it clearly welcomed the proposal as a step in the right direction to modernise the important Industry.
