The Malta Business Bureau (MBB) congratulates the six newly elected Maltese Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) and emphasized the critical role they will play in representing Malta’s interests at the European level.

MBB looks forward to collaborating closely with the new MEPs throughout the upcoming EU legislature. It strongly urges them to work diligently to promote Malta’s priorities within the EU, contribute towards policy discussions that impact our economy, and tackle head-on the disadvantages which Malta faces as a small island state.

The organisation further encourages MEPs to establish consistent communication with Maltese stakeholders on key policy matters. This will enable them to understand the realities on the ground and present a strong position in Brussels.

Prior to last Saturday’s election, MBB identified several key areas of focus for EU policymakers in a publication outlining business priorities ahead of the next EU term. The publication is structured around three main pillars: (i) Competitiveness and Growth, (ii) the Green Transition, and (iii) the Digital Transition. It advocates for measures to alleviate regulatory burdens, secure adequate funding, prioritize subsidiarity and proportionality, address geographical challenges, and resolve labour shortages, among other issues. 

The publication repeatedly underscores the importance of competitiveness, which is expected to become increasingly prominent in EU policy dialogues in the next term.

MBB strongly urges the elected MEPs to actively engage with these priorities within the European Parliament and help ensure that Malta’s business interests are heard and addressed at the EU level.
