In a press release issued this morning, the Malta Chamber remarked that “On election to government in 2013, the Labour party delivered on its promise of a businessfriendly environment that was conducive for economic growth and a creativity of investment.” The statement added that “the Malta Chamber has played a major role in this process which brought about our country’s most affluent time to date.”
The Malta Chamber stated that “This government’s track record however, has been tarnished by a long and heavy shadow it cannot shake or shrug off. The events that took place last night, brought to the fore more doubts rather than certainties, more questions rather than answers.”
“The latest developments this morning, on the Vitals Global Healthare case involving three Ministers continues to make matters worse,” it said.
The Malta Chamber expressed its fear that this situation will prove detrimental to business confidence and the general stability of the country in the long run. On behalf of all well-spirited and ethical businesses in Malta, the Chamber called on the Prime Minister to do the right thing, and ensure that justice is delivered as soon as possible.
The Chamber voiced its concern on the fact that “Unfortunately, the accusations that have been levelled against people in the highest echelons of power, prevent the office of the Prime Minister from delivering on this tall order, and this is raising doubts in the entire system. A way out must be found.”
“Not only must justice be done; it must also be seen to be done and immediately. Only in such a way will we assure the much needed stability and business confidence for the country" the Chamber concluded.
