“Government, business leaders, and educational institutions must give vital importance to technology and innovation as the true backbone to any sustainable economy,” said The Malta Chamber President, Perit David Xuereb, during the Tech.MT Annual General Meeting which was held at The Malta Chamber.
Tech.MT, which was established in 2019 as a Public-Private Partnership between The Malta Chamber and the Maltese Government, aims at promoting Malta as a hub for innovation and technology.
Xuereb continued by emphasising the importance of smart investment by both businesses and the government to ensure optimum efficiency to achieve sustainable economic growth ambitions.
“This is becoming even more relevant today as we must seek new opportunities to re-engineer ourselves from both a personal and professional point of view. As a Chamber of Commerce, we believe that Malta should reach the maximum levels of productivity to enhance the country’s competitiveness level, within a local and international level, and Tech.mt is more than capable to help in achieving these targets,” explained The Chamber President.
Perit Xuereb noted that ever since it was established, Tech.MT had been a success story. “It has become a pillar for the tech industry and continues to deliver on its mission by organising a number of key initiatives such as the eBusiness Awards and the Women4IT project. Through such initiatives, technology has become ever more tangible and accessible to people of all ages,” said Xuereb.
