GRTU meets MEP Metsola


GRTU President and CEO have this week met re-elected MEP,
Roberta Metsola. GRTU and Dr Metsola discussed the Draft Agenda of the Plenary
to be held between 14 and 17 July in Strasbourg. On the draft agenda are very
important topics, amongst which the Transatlantic Trade and Investment
Partnership (TTIP), Maternity Leave Directive and Youth Employment.

GRTU explained the issue we have with bank interest
rates and charges and that this is not only an important debate in Malta but
also an important debate at EU level especially following the bold steps taken
by the European Central Bank which has been pushing for low interest rates and
even issued negative interest rates on savings to prioritise lending. GRTU
asked MEP Metsola to look into issue.

Dr Metsola also made reference to the position sent by
GRTU to all Maltese MEPs on the MIF Regulation which she will be following up
on.

 

The meeting was indeed a very positive one and GRTU
intends to continue building on the excellent working relationship it has established
with MEP Metsola during the last year.
