Speaking on ‘Life & Style’, President Perit David Xuereb spoke about the work of The Malta Chamber during the COVID pandemic and its role in providing leadership and support for businesses in Malta during such a sensitive time.
“Representing businesses which are responsible for employing over 80% of Malta’s workforce, varying from large corporations to small and medium sized companies within a wide range of industries and sectors, The Malta Chamber is the nation’s foremost business organisation and a key player in policy formation” Perit Xuereb told Lea Hogg, the presenter of the show.
In the past months, “we managed to attract the attention and energy of our members to ensure that recommendations are well researched and relevant to not only our members, but also to the nation as a whole” the President noted.
Commenting on issues of Good Governance, The Chamber President said “One of our 64 recommendations, which were made public prior to the election of the current Prime Minister in the begning of this year, was to introduce a Minister within his new cabinet that would be responsible for Good Governance. Sure enough, the Prime Minister accepted this proposal and appointed a Minister who had Governance in his portfolio of responisbilites. This shows the extent of the influence The Malta Chamber has on such matters and stakeholders.”
Reflecting on last year’s events related to governance, the President said that instead of pointing fingers, The Malta Chamber brought together the best talent on the island to form a tangible strategy that would help address the challenges in this sensitive subject.
