The Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with JAYE Malta Foundation with the aim of promoting an entrepreneurial culture amongst the young, the leaders of tomorrow.
Ahead of the signing, President Perit David Xuereb noted that the MOU underlined the values of the two organisations in terms of promoting an entrepreneurial culture among the young, and providing the necessary support to all businesses.
“As Malta’s leading business representative body, The Malta Chamber’s intent was always to support, represent and connect businesses to continuously grow and engage in shaping Malta’s future. This goes very much in line with JAYE’s purpose which aims at inspiring and educating young people through practical business projects which develop attitudes and skills for professional success, life-long learning and employability,” noted President Xuereb.
“This signing perfectly compliments The Malta Chamber’s vision that young people are essential in the development of a sustainable future for Malta’s economy and should therefore be introduced to an entrepreneurial culture from a young age. To this extent, through the various services and events organised, The Malta Chamber is the ideal platform for these young and aspiring individuals to truly experience the world of commerce and business in its true form,” explained Xuereb.
Ms Fiona Captur, CEO of JAYE Malta said, “The Malta Chamber and JAYE Malta Foundation have long been aligned in their joint collaboration. Our mutual focus on developing resilient and relevant human capital brings synergies to our mission to the benefit of our students who are ultimately tomorrow’s Young Chamber Network (YCN) members.”
The Memorandum of Understanding was signed by Perit David Xuereb and Ms Marisa Xuereb as President and Deputy President of The Malta Chamber, respectively, who were accompanied by Board of Management Members Mrs Chris Vassallo Cesareo, and Mr Karl Briffa and Ms Fiona Capture as Chairman and CEO of JAYE Malta Foundation, respectively.
