A national platform to promote female entrepreneurship


The Minister
for the Economy, Investment and Small Business, Dr Chris Cardona had a formal
discussion on Female Entrepreneurship with Ms Zita Gurmai PES Women President
and Former MEP.

Minister Cardona said that the
story in Malta is a similar one to many countries; the position of women has
advanced in recent years but there is still a lot to do.

 "The active
participation of women in the world of work and entrepreneurship is an
essential ingredient to meet our objective of creating economic growth that reaches
everyone. If we don't harness the skills of women we, as a society, as an
economy, are under performing" said
Minister Cardona.

Dr Chris Cardona said that the
Government is now designing a national platform to promote female
entrepreneurship. He stressed that this needs to be a continuous strategy,
consistent and coordinated, not just sporadic initiatives taken once in a
while.

Minister Cardona stated that
initiatives encouraging women to enter the work force have also been
acknowledged by Standard & Poor's as one of the elements helping the
Maltese economy to continue growing: "A recent report by Standard & Poor's
affirmed that the Maltese economy is stable and expected to continue growing in
the coming years and this is in part due to the reforms the current government
has been implementing such as initiatives aimed at encouraging women to enter
the work force."
