GRTU meets new Head of Commission representation – Martin Bugelli

 GRTU President Paul Abela, Vice President Philip Fenech and Director General Vincent Farrugia were earlier this month very pleased to meet Mr Martin Bugelli for a cordial introductory meeting at the GRTU premises.


GRTU's Director General and EESC Employers` Group member told Mr Bugelli that "as the national organisation representing SMEs we are extremely happy with your nomination as we have worked together for many years and we know exactly the determination and enthusiasm which dominates your performance. For small business proprietors in Malta it is essential that the EU Commission is represented by a strong personality who is not afraid to reach out to the widest cross-section possible of people, and in our case this is particularly important as in spite of our own efforts through our own electronic newspaper the GRTU newSTRING, which diffuses information and advice to small businesses, and also the efforts of MEUSAC, there are still a substantial amount of people who are under the influence of misinformation about Europe, propagated in the past".

GRTU is very active at European level through our direct representation in the Employers bureau at EESC and in the administration boards of both EuroCommerce and UEAPME and we regularly send delegates to various EU Commission activities, seminars and courses, but we still believe there is much more to be done. GRU offers all its support to make sure that Martin Bugelli excels in his position as Head of the EU Commission representation in Malta. The GRTU officers wished Mr Bugelli the best of luck while occupying the new post.
