Malta’s Presidency of the Council of the EU, Brexit, Enterprise Europe Network and trade relations with Libya were amongst the subjects discussed during a meeting between H.E. G. Kathleen Hill, Ambassador of the United States of America to Malta and the President of the Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry Mr Anton Borg on 28th July.

The Ambassador was visiting the Chamber following her recent appointment. Welcoming Ms Hill, Mr Borg provided an overview of the Chamber’s activity as the largest independent organisation representing business in Malta. He also referred to the Chamber’s ‘Economic Vision for Malta 2014-2020’, of which a number of recommendations have already been taken on board.

Mr Borg spoke about the unprecedented results currently being registered by Malta’s economy and how the Chamber was interested in ensuring that the growth would be sustained.

The meeting made reference to the volatile Gaming sector and the efforts being made to strengthen manufacturing whilst introducing new sectors such as Wellness, Medical Tourism and High Level services.

The President also said that trade with the US would be focused on in a “Doing Business with US” event that is being organised by Trade Malta in October at the Malta Chamber.

The Ambassador was accompanied by Ms Elise Lambert, Commercial Officer at the Embassy. Present for the meeting was Tonio Casapinta Vice President of the Chamber, Mr Sergio Vella Member of the Board of Management and Council Member and Dr John Vassallo, Chairman of the Malta Business Bureau.
