GRTU President Paul Abela has welcomed the candidate for the position of Honorary Consul Martin Ramusch from Austria. Mr Abela initiated the discussion by explaining how GRTU reaches out to its members to provide assistance and information on various issues that affect local business. As the Chamber for SMEs, GRTU has grown into a leading social partner represented on national fora such as the Malta Council for Economic and Social Development whilst maintaining a central role in EU policy through its active membership in UEAPME and EuroCommerce.
GRTU is central to Mr Abela continued by emphasising that GRTU holds a healthy relationship with government as well as with the opposition. This allows GRTU to advocate its members concerns with directly policy makers and decision-making fora. GRTU is also engaged in providing services and support to its members allowing it to act as a business partner to its members.
It was also discussed that Malta has already taken the opportunity to invest and do business with Austria. This fact alone continues to encourage strong ties and investment between both countries. Austria places itself as one of the most advanced economies in Europe and Malta’s fast developments and flexible growth places both countries as ideal partners to allow business growth and cooperation. Exchange of business practices, models as well as resources, can serve as channels to broaden and deepen cooperation initiatives for mutual benefit.
