A delegation from The Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry met with H.E. the President of the Republic Dr George Vella yesterday.
During the meeting, Perit Xuereb updated the President of the Republic with the latest developments in the endeavours of The Malta Chamber in the past weeks.
Perit Xuereb described the business sentiment on which the Chamber kept a close eye on through its regular surveys among its membership which represented all sectors of the Maltese economy, and how since mid-March, the organisation was proposing recommendations to Government to support businesses through the challenging times of COVID.
The Chamber President explained how the Chamber more recently made proposals for business support that would incentivise and encourage forward-looking business planning and reorientation of strategies to ensure resilience in Maltese companies.
Mr Xuereb also spoke about the Chamber’s views on Economic reopening, the country’s challenges relating to HR, post-COVID realities and the Chamber’s recently instated Think Tank aimed at thinking outside the box and create various scenarios of how the post-pandemic landscape will look.
His Excellency was particularly interested in the Chamber’s views and new, proactive initiatives in the area of supporting businesses in ensuring their present survival and resilience/viability in the realities of a new normal. The President expressed interest in meeting the Chamber on a more regular basis.
