As the COVID-19 situation improves, focus shifts towards regenerating the economy. Support incentive schemes, accelerating investment in businesses and the development of strategies to grow sustainability, will be key for Malta and Gozo moving forward.
‘Regenerating the Economy’ will be the theme of an upcoming business webinar, hosted by the Gozo Business Chamber and Bank of Valletta, in collaboration with Malta Enterprise and the Ministry for Energy, Enterprise and Sustainable Development. The webinar, to be held on the 21st May at 10:00hrs, is also supported by the Ministry for Gozo NGO Assistance Scheme, a funding programme for Voluntary Organisations on the Island of Gozo.
“Businesses have suffered major losses throughout the past year,” stated Joseph Borg, President of the Gozo Business Chamber. “This webinar will serve as an opportunity for businesses to understand better the new Malta Enterprise schemes as recently announced by the Government and how they can benefit from them to kick-start their investment cycle.”
