Our Diversity makes us stronger


“Each and every one of us, especially those of us who are parents and have the opportunity and obligation to influence future generations, and those of us who are active business leaders within Malta’s economy have a vital role in delivering on the ingredients that reinforce national unity, a cardinal and moral objective for any country,” said The Malta Chamber President, Perit David Xuereb during the Conference for National Unity organised by the Office of the President of Malta last Saturday.

Led by H.E. Dr George Vella, President of the Republic, the conference aimed at initiating a mature and unconditional discussion on the subject with the direct involvement of the public.

“In order to engage collectively with the objective of a thriving community that prioritizes national unity, we must acknowledge the factors that, unfortunately, we allow to divide us. From political colour to sport fanaticism to skin colour to income scale, there are several aspects that hinder unity, since we tend to label too passionately and loosely,” explained Xuereb. This must be acknowledged if we are to be sincere.

The Chamber President paralleled any successful business that is composed of talent with diverse yet complementing skills with what may be expected of society at large. “Each employee within an organization, like a sportsperson in a winning football team, and alike a citizen within a country, brings uniqueness and value that is essential to the sustainable development of the team he or she forms part of. Diverse thoughts, opinions and talent that are coming from the mind are strong ingredients of successful societies. This should not be confused with the need for compassion for the alignment of our emotions in spirit. Our diversity makes us stronger!”

Perit Xuereb said that it is important and valuable to identify the factors that unite our citizens. “In the past months, we have all come to one united front and agreed that Good Governance had become a national priority and that Climate Change has become a significant quality of life opportunity. We have become able to extrapolate this principle onto other areas of common interest which we should celebrate stronger and more frequently. Only through such a perspective, can we engage in the correct positive energies that ensure a robust social foundation while securing an appreciation and an efficient use of resources that are available to us while prioritizing our mental and physical wellbeing,” the Chamber President said.

“As a Chamber of Commerce, we strongly believe that a code of minimal respect should be incorporated at the political, business, professional and personal levels to ensure that our society truly thrives. Tangible sustainability is key, and can be attained, when it is backed up by an honest, mature, and genuine society that is driven by robust values” concluded Xuereb.
