PM launches budget theme with a play on words

Prime Minister Robert Abela has taken to Facebook to launch the theme for the 2021 Budget which is to be read this evening in Parliament. “Maltin b’Saħħitna ‘l Quddiem” loosely translates as Malta putting its best foot forward, using a play on the word ‘Saħħitna’ which could both ‘strong’ and ‘healthy’.

On Facebook, PM Abela said that the budget will confirm that the country is strong/healthy and is led by a movement which believes in the people. He said that the budget will invest millions into stimulating growth in the economy and for wealth generation. He promised that the budget will improve the quality of life.

The PM’s launch of the budget theme comes hot on the heels of an announcement made on Sunday that the voucher scheme will be extended.
