World Bank Publication Shames Malta’s Progress

The Report of the World Bank: Doing Business
2013 alarmingly ranked Malta with countries of the like of Syria, Madagascar
and Tajikistan! In all the 20 years of combating bureaucracy we thought we had
reached a good point or at least some improvement was made and not that we
would be shamed on an international level.

GRTU complained with the top
Government officials on how they could let something like this happen that puts
Malta in such a bad light. Someone should be responsible to see that the
criteria of measurement are right. GRTU is very much aware that MEPA is still
far from being business friendly and it is reflecting badly on everyone. The
report is however too negative and unrealistic and who made a fool of us must
be kept responsible and ensure that next year we get the recognition we deserve
and a ranking that reflects this. The result reflects incompetence. An
investigation must be carried out and action needs to be taken.  The picture shows how Malta ranked. The
highest rank possible being 1 and the lowest rank possible is 186
