The economic regeneration plan, ‘A Better Tomorrow’, has benefitted greatly from the proposals of The Chamber stated Prime Minister Robert Abela during The Malta Chamber of Commerce Annual General Meeting which was held online on Thursday.

During The Chamber’s Annual General Meeting Prime Minister Abela noted how the ideas and feedback of The Malta Chamber were key in the development of the Government’s policies during the COVID-19 crisis.

Referring to the scheme, whereby Malta Enterprise will afford assistance to businesses, to help them re-engineer their business plans, Abela said this scheme is inspired directly by discussions with the Chamber’s council.

“Our business community, faced by this unexpected and formidable challenge, instead of cowering and retreating, has shown incredible resilience, and ingenuity. Business leaders, did not panic, but instead quickly found ways to operate as optimally as possible, in the circumstances” said Robert Abela.

He noted how it would have been relatively easier for businesses to close down during the crisis and wait for the pandemic to be over. “In reality you did the exact opposite” Abela told The Malta Chamber members.
