Chamber opens up pre-budget proposals exercise to members

The Malta Chamber is once again turning to its membership to provide it with ideas and solutions to be included in its pre-budget document that it will be presenting to Government in the pre-budget consultation period. The Malta Chamber engages in this process on a yearly basis, in a bid to faithfully reflect its members ambitions in the positions it takes on a national level.

“The Malta Chamber is a unique position, that allows it to turn to its strong membership, spread over all the economic sectors and business activity in Malta, and receive first hand, on the ground information about the challenges and issues being experienced by the operators of the specific fields” said Kevin J. Borg, Malta Chamber DG.

He said that this is one of the main reasons why the Chamber’s opinions are so highly regarded by one administration after the other and why its calls rarely fall on deaf ears.

The Malta Chamber grasps every opportunity to influence the formation of policy at a national level and the the pre-budget consultation period presents an unparalleled opportunity to do just this.

The Malta Chamber’s Pre-Budget Consultation is being formally launched, encouraging members to furnish the Chamber with relevant ideas, proposals and feedback.

The Chamber calls all members to submit proposals aimed both at overcoming issues faced at present as well as new and innovative ideas that will ascertain Malta’s position at the forefront of investment shortlists for years to come.

Such proposals will serve as the backbone to the Malta Chamber’s annual Pre-Budget Proposals Document – a document treated with significant importance by policy makers during the drafting of the Budget document.

Proposals are to be communicated to the Malta Chamber’s Policy Development Unit by no later than Wednesday 2nd August 2017 on 2203 2317 or via e-mail to [email protected]

The Chamber thanks its proactive members for their contributions in the interest of improvements to the respective business sectors.
