In a press release issued this morning, the Malta Chamber congratulated Government on setting up the Building Construction Agency.
"Looking ahead, the Chamber augurs that this is only the first step in a target driven journey of raising quality standards and upholding ethical operations in the very active construction industry", the statement said.
The announcement continued to enforce the suggestions which the Malta Chamber has, up till recently, been very vociferous about. One of which is the need for a complete overhaul of the construction industry, no less the establishment of an authority that would be tasked with tangibly raising the standards of this important industry.
The Chamber stated that it's calls remain unchanged, as it advocates a high-quality economy where mediocrity and sub-standards become a thing of the past, and are replaced by a culture of excellence, where the current ‘good enough’ attitude is replaced by ‘nothing but the best’ within a specified time frame.
The Chamber of Commerce believes that the ethical standards and quality of our construction industry need to be raised immediately and brought in line with those in other developed countries. "Our citizens certainly deserve no less. Let this be a first step in the right direction that has clear and tangible quality and respectful deliverables and objectives."
