The Central Bank of Malta (Bank) launched the update of its Corporate Strategic Plan during a virtual event for all staff members on 14 March 2022. During this event staff members were addressed by the Governor Edward Scicluna, Deputy Governors Alexander Demarco and Oliver Bonello, and the Chief Operating Officer Daniele Romano.
The Bank confirmed its strategic objectives and key performance indicators, identified and prioritised its project portfolio, and ensured a direct relationship between the Bank’s strategic objectives and the contribution required by each staff member.
