SME Chamber assisting wedding sector through Covid
06 May 2021
The SME Chamber is working to seek further clarifications on the gradual return to normality...
GRTU held a
cordial meeting with Mr. Joshua Zammit, CEO at Malta Industrial Parks in
relation to a number of issues facing GRTU's members in Gozo. The meeting
focused on the current situation of leases at Ta' Dbiegi Crafts Village and the
conditions issued with each individual lease.
Abela, GRTU President outlined that it was MIP's responsibility to make sure
that although policies change from time to time, certain primary conditions
should remain cardinal. In this case, some leases were issued for 65years,
others for ten years and expired many years ago, others for three to five
years. A major condition of a leased unit included manufacturing of crafts on
site and selling them from this Crafts Village.
officials present for the meeting pointed out that a Crafts Village cannot be
allowed to deteriorate to just retailing because of a few operators who should
know better. GRTU stated that MIP is responsible to enforce the fact that the
conditions of the lease should be respected.
Joshua Zammit advised that he will look into the leases and provide feedback to
GRTU at the earliest possible. A few individual issues related to individual
tenants of land, leased by MIP were also discussed and it was agreed that GRTU
is to send all documents so that individual cases are followed. GRTU officials
thanked Mr Joshua Zammit for his hospitality and will be awaiting feedback
