WES TRADE Ltd, a member of the Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry has teamed up with global players such as Airbus, to study the use of systems such as drones for future air transport.

“Today we are witnessing a company, WES TRADE LTD, which is cleverly deploying resources at its disposal, to come up with and provide solutions for the ever-growing aircraft industry. This initiative is laudable on its own steam - when such a company however, also happens to be an upstanding member of our Chamber, we feel all the more proud” said Mr Frank V. Farrugia who was addressing the launch of the project in Cagliari, Italy.

The Press Conference was also addressed by the Prime Minister of Malta Dr Joseph Muscat and WesTrade Chief Executive Alessio Bucaioni.

Mr Farrugia said that in an age of economic growth, the Malta Chamber cannot simply stop at being proud of its members. “We, in fact, exist to support ambitious and daring businesses whether they are Maltese-owned, internationally owned or partnerships that are a result of the combination of the two. Our interest is to act as a one-stop shop, offering a portfolio of services that support and sustain all Malta-based businesses in their daily needs” he said.

Mr Farrugia then went on to describe the operation of the Chamber and the work it does in the fields of Policy development, the support it provides the various sectors from the different economic groups as well as the Chamber’s efforts to help businesses reach further via its Internationalisation unit.

The Chamber President also spoke about Malta’s dynamic economy. “Malta has a dynamic and varied economy which is nimble and quick to act on opportunities. In fact, arguably, there couldn’t be a better time to do business with Malta” Mr Farrugia said.

“This is an excellent opportunity for our two territories to discuss ways of creating new synergies, whereby we could exchange human resources to the mutual benefit of both. We are always looking for such opportunities and this is no exception” he said.

“Allow me to encourage all businesses to come forward and talk to us about possible avenues of collaboration, and ways on how we can do business together. Today we are celebrating one such succesful collaboration – I trust many more are just waiting to take place. Our Chamber is committed to continue sustaining and promoting businesses, no matter where they are from, and no matter which field they operate in. I am confident that this exciting new venture being launched today, shall bear the desired fruit” Mr Farrugia concluded.
