Sustainability and digital infrastructure will shape how we live and how we travel.

The Malta Chamber CEO, Dr Marthese Portelli, accompanied by Tourism Operators Business Section Chair Alan Arrigo, Policy Executive Julia Aquilina and Glenn Fenech, Senior Consultant at Seed Consultancy, met with Steve Ellul, Policy Advisor within the Ministry for Energy, Enterprise and Sustainable Development.

During the meeting, The Malta Chamber delegation presented ‘Rediscover - A New Vision For The Tourism Industry In Malta’ which includes more than 120 proposals for the tourism industry.

Some of the proposals discussed during the meeting were:

  • Continue providing schemes that support green incentives, such as stimulating investment in energy and water-efficient technologies, investment in digitalization, and projects that promote holistic and sustainable tourist experiences
  • Ensure a strong infrastructure that takes into account proper waste management as well as a stable water and electricity supply
  • Investment in Blue Economy Growth with particular investment in the diving industry
  • More afforestation projects, national parks and better countryside and valley management

"Sustainability and digital infrastructure will shape how we live and how we travel. It is crucial for Tourism operators to rebuild the industry by maintaining and improving Malta's socio-cultural and environmental assets in order to have quality experiences for our visitors," said Alan Arrigo, Tourism Operators Business Section Chair.
