The Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry, is organising the first-ever edition of the Maltese Parliament for Enterprises.

Christoph Leitl, President of EUROCHAMBRES and Frank V. Farrugia, President of the Malta Chamber shall also address Parliament.

Speaker of the House Anglu Farrugia introduced the session as part of the Parliament’s outreach programme, stating that the house is open to all European citizens, and encouraging citizens and civil society to participate in political discourse that transcends national borders.

“Economic operators should conduct businesses in an ethical way according to law, respecting consumer rights, worker rights and third party rights.”

“We are part of the global market and EU so our operators need to be competitive at a global level.”

The Prime Minister, Leader of the Opposition and members of Parliament from both sides of the house are expected to react to the statements done by businesses. 

The session is being organised in collaboration with the Office of the Speaker of the House of Representatives and EUROCHAMBRES.
