Participating in this morning’s business breakfast on the country’s challenges related to transport and traffic organised by Newsbook, Chamber President David Xuereb said that the country needed to discuss the movement of goods within the country, as well as the mass transit of persons.
‘Timing of deliveries and deliveries specific to certain areas need to be carefully studied so that the burden on traffic and roads is balanced out’ Perit Xuereb noted.
David Xuereb, noted how the business breakfast was the first event to which he was attending physically, as the COVID experience had left tangible marks. He said that one change was that the scope of the breakfast was widened, through the use of virtual means, allowing more persons to participate, rather than limiting the input to those who were physically present.
He asked if the leadership of the country, government and business alike, were ready to improve production and quality of life through remote working. Perit Xuereb asked if the captains of the country were prepared to go down this route wherever possible.
“Connectivity is crucial in life as well as in business” Perit Xuereb added.
Innovative transportation such as electric solutions needed to be seriously considered, said Perit Xuereb. More pressure needs to be put on the leadership of the country to employ innovation so that the challenges related to traffic are eased, the Chamber President concluded.
