GRTU President Paul Abela meets MEP Dr Roberta Metsola

GRTU President Paul Abela and Council Member Karmenu Vella have this week met with Maltese MEP, Roberta Metsola. During the meeting, GRTU and Dr Metsola discussed various concerns that are currently affecting local business and SMEs. These issues included matters of unequal terms that SMEs face due to unfair competition. 

Paul Abela highlighted the importance of thinking small first and how policy-

making needs to be implemented with the smallest businesses and self-employed in mind. Dr Metsola acknowledged the role that SMEs and micro-businesses play in the EU economy but also in Malta. Dr Metsola expressed the importance for policy-making to maintain closer cooperation and dialogue with businesses. She outlined that Malta’s businesses have a lot to contribute. The right balance between safeguarding consumers’ rights and not increasing unnecessary bureaucracy or unfair burdens on small businesses needs to be found.
