19th June 2020

The Malta Chamber’s Thematic Committee which is being supported by Engel & Völkers, is made up of different elites within their field, dedicated to discussing the issues prevalent in the industry with the aim of fostering a resilient building industry.

In this series of articles, maltachamber.org.mt will be introducing its most recent collaborators, Engel & Völkers, GasanMamo Insurance, EIE Institute of Education, Evolve Ltd. and Klikk who join the family of partners of the Malta Chamber.

The Malta Chamber recently concluded a number of partnership agreements, aimed at sustaining and strengthening the operations of the Chamber in a number of theme-focused areas of specialisation and beyond. These collaborations were all especially designed to enhance The Malta Chamber’s services and expert representation in prioritised areas of interest.

In his comments to maltachamber.org.mt on this Gold partnership agreement, Engel & Völkers CEO, Benjamin Tabone Grech said that the organisation entered into this agreement in its efforts to contribute towards the built environment, ensure sustainability and quality and compliment this to reflect the country’s rich culture, tranquil quality of life and innovation.

“We are very proud of our islands and we would like to see supportive measures achieved through Chambers' economic visions within a setup time frame. The way the Chamber started to implement changes to its structure and become more involved, and enjoy a horizontal representation approach of the professionals across all industries, will no doubt be one of the key reasons to help in making Malta great, once again”, he added.

Commenting on the need for a reform in the Industry, Mr Tabone Grech stated that “The way Malta has undertaken the building and construction industry over the past 20 odd years has not been exemplary. It is now our time for a change. We seek to take active and concrete measures to promote professionalism through initiatives related to environmental responsibilities, standards, and training.”

Through the Gold Collaboration Alliance which the Malta Chamber signed with Engel & Völkers, this organisation shall support the formation of The Building and Construction Industry Committee, a new horizontal policy committee within The Malta Chamber, which will be set up to develop the Chamber’s policy in key areas related to the Building and Construction Industry. The objectives of the Committee shall be to create awareness about the importance of the Building and Construction Industry sector as a strategic pillar of Malta’s economic success and address the need for an uplift in the quality of the sector’s operations and values.

The Malta Chamber’s Thematic Committee which is being supported by Engel & Völkers, is made up of different elites within their field, dedicated to discussing the issues prevalent in the industry with the aim of fostering a resilient building industry. This adds to the vociferous statements made by the Malta Chamber in the past months in this regard. The Chamber understands the need for a reform in the industry and has highlighted the necessity for a change in its Economic Vision for Malta published earlier this year that included a list of recommendations within the industry.

Engel & Völkers is a leading service company specialised in the brokerage of premium residential property, commercial real estate, yachts and aircraft.
