01 February 2024
Malta Chamber of SMEs President Mr Paul Abela and Deputy President Mr Philip Fenech welcomed...
GRTU President Paul Abela has called on future MEPs to stay
close to businesses and safeguard their interest during their work at the
European Parliament. He also emphasized that Access to Finance is of utmost
importance because you can have very valid ideas but if there are no finances
nothing can be done.
He also said that even though we were very disappointed
that marginal dialogue existed with our previous MEPs we look at the future
more hope and invited the candidates to stay in close contact with the GRTU.
This took place this morning at an event organized by the
European Parliament office in Malta where the Maltese Business Manifesto for
the European Parliament elections was presented. The European Parliament Office
did an excellent job in compiling the individual proposals presented by the
business organizations into one comprehensive manifesto.
The Head of the Office Dr Peter Agius said that this was an
exercise aimed at give businesses a voice in the next elections. He continued
saying that in any discussion at EU level on any policies stakeholders are
always involved. In most of these cases business is a main stakeholder.
Various candidates for the EP election were present as well
as one current MEP Dr Roberta Metsola.
