Perit David Xuereb calls on national leaders to be innovative in transport

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Perit David Xuereb, President of the Malta Chamber of Enterprise and Industry said during the Newsbook Business Breakfast that this is one of the first events to which he is attending physically and the COVID experience has left tangible marks. He said that one change is that the scope of this breakfast has widened since through virtuality, more persons are reached without their having to be physically present. He asked if the leadership of the country, government and business alike, are ready to improve production and quality of life through remote working. Perit Xuereb asked if the captains of the country are prepared to go down this route wherever possible. 

Perit Xuereb said that connectivity is crucial in life as well as in business. Malta, he said, needs to discuss even the movement of goods within the country: timing of deliveries and deliveries specific to the area need to be carefully studied so that the burden on traffic and roads is balanced out. 

Innovative transportation such as electric transport need to be seriously considered, said Perit Xuereb. He added that more pressure needs to be put on the leadership of the country to employ innovation so that the pressure on traffic is eased.
