The four employer organisations represented at Malta Council for Economic and Social Development (MCESD) have jointly nominated Stefano Mallia and Doris Sammut Bonnici as their representatives on the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC).
Earlier this year, Mr Mallia was elected to the prestigious position of President of the Employers Group (Group 1) of EESC. Ms Sammut Bonnici currently occupies the post of President of the Malta Employers Association.
The move towards a joint and unanimous nomination is unprecedented since Malta joined the European Union and the EESC. It is also a rare occurrence on the European level. Malta’s employer bodies felt duty bound to join forces and unite particularly at this most challenging juncture facing Malta, Europe and the world.
The four employer organisations on the MCESD are made up of: The Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry, the Malta Employers’ Association, the Malta Chamber of SMEs (GRTU) and the Malta Hotels and Restaurants Association.
