The Malta Hotels and Restaurants Association (MHRA) welcomed the new measures announced by Prime Minister Robert Abelato address the economic crises being caused by the COVID 19.
The measures were announced late on Tuesday evening by Prime Minister Robert Abela.
In a statement, MHRA said that the new measures follow continuous and persistent representation from MHRA that the grant of €320 towards the cost of wages was simply not enough and had to be reviewed significantly upwards.
The MHRA said that the announced measures are the result of long hours of mediation and lobbying with all stakeholders and above all a sense of goodwill by all parties involved.
Tony Zahra, President of the association stated that “We are satisfied that our calls to Government for review have been heard by Government and that was ready to go back to the drawing board with us to ensure the welfare of the economy.”
Zahra also said that what we are living today is an extraordinary situation but a temporary one which definitely will leave a sour mark on all of us.
