‘We will not wait for the Government and therefore today I want to announce that I will commission the Party Regional Committee in Gozo to complete within a few months a socio-economic plan in collaboration with Gozitan deputies and with the participation of experts.” 

He said that this plan should analyse Gozitan society today and plan for how this society will develop in the coming years. He envisages that this plan will serve as a basis for the renewal of the policy of the Partit Nazzjonalista in Gozo.  

The plan which will be drawn by Gozitan themselves, said the PN leader and with the objective of conserving Gozo’s beauty, while diversifying the economy and guarantying work for young Gozitans on the island. 

Gozo deserves better 

The PN Leader criticised the Labour Government for changing the Minister for Gozo three times in 7 years. 

‘Robert Abela himself confirmed that this is an incompetent government so much so that he was forced to re-shuffle his cabinet twice in ten months.”
