During a delegation The Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry presented Tourism Minister Julia Farrugia Portelli with its recommendations for Malta’s 2021 Budget.
President Perit David Xuereb highlighted the importance of sustainable tourism.
According to Xuereb, sustainable tourism needs to be integrated within a holistic strategy to achieve National Quality Objectives, as set out in the Chamber’s Vision document – Smart Sustainable Island, that seeks to safeguard economic growth while enhancing the quality of life.
“This theme should be reflected in the entire value chain and trickled down to all economic operators”, he continued.
Minister Julia Farrugia Portelli thanked The Malta Chamber for its continuous work, and said that Government is working on a strategy based on sustainable tourism which is expected to characterise an industry driven by quality experiences in the coming years.
