On Tuesday 17 January 2023, Central Bank of Malta Governor, Professor Edward Scicluna, was paid a courtesy visit by Architect David Xuereb, as the newly appointed chairperson of the Malta Council for Economic and Social Development (MCESD) on 9 January 2023.
During this meeting, the Governor spoke about the key role of the MCESD as an advisory council that issues opinions and recommendations to the Maltese government, civil society and the public on matters of economic and social relevance. This was particularly evident during the management of the COVID-19 pandemic and in finding ways to mitigate the effects of the Russia-Ukrainian conflict on the Maltese economy.
Architect David Xuereb elaborated on the MCESD’s vision, that of continuing improving on the most key role of social dialogue and how the MCESD consistently strives to be the most effective catalyst between the social partners and the Government. Architect David Xuereb is the seventh chairperson of the MCESD.
The meeting was held in the Governor’s office at Central Bank of Malta premises in Valletta.
