The Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry would like to congratulate Prime Minister Robert Abela and the newly appointed Cabinet and wishes them a successful term in government.
The Malta Chamber is committed to continue working in the areas that improve the business landscape, particularly in energy and sustainability, digitalisation, good governance, public procurement, tourism, vocational education and employment. Many of these initiatives taken by The Malta Chamber are intended to facilitate investment, providing a level playing field, improving competitiveness and the ease of doing business. All these will be crucial for our economy because they will be able to perform in challenging times. The Malta Chamber is pleased to note that a number of Ministers with whom it worked during the past legislature have been reconfirmed. The Malta Chamber is committed to continue building on what has been initiated. Additionally, The Malta Chamber looks forward to collaborate with the new Foreign Minister on trade and internationalisation, and to work with other Ministers who have been assigned new portfolios that are of pertinence to business, notably transport, planning, justice and social dialogue.
Similarly, The Malta Chamber is looking forward to the unveiling of the Shadow Cabinet and to work with the respective members of the Opposition.
The Malta Chamber would like to thank all candidates and party officials who contributed to this electoral process, and congratulates all candidates who will form part of the new parliament. The electoral result, particularly the significant increase in non-voters following a campaign full of promises, calls for careful consideration of what a substantial portion of the electorate really expects from our politicians. The Malta Chamber will continue to do its part in promoting social dialogue and contributing to the country’s policy development.
