The Chamber is privileged to be recently invited to participate in a high-level Think Tank formed by Minister Bonnici responsible for both Education and Employment, to work alongside the teaching profession and other important stakeholders in these fields.
The initiative taken by the Ministry stems from recommendations made by the Chamber in its Economic Vision document for 2020-2025 which pictures Malta as a “Smart Sustainable Island” in the years to come. Education is, in fact, one of the main pillars of the Chamber’s document which highlights the need for further upskilling of our workforce to the fast-changing industry demands through creativity, knowledge and skills.
Upon his nomination to the MEDE Think Tank, Perit David Xuereb commented “For Malta to be smart and sustainable in the years to come, we need our people to be able to effectively translate ideas into innovation to be applied into smart business models, processes, products and resources. Our Education system needs to be tuned to the country’s future needs and whilst congratulating the Minister for thinking the same way as the Chamber, I am more than delighted to contribute to this worthy cause.”
