Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

The Maltese diaspora in Toronto met with Prime Minister Joseph Muscat.

Muscat contrasted the labour market then and now, and explained that unlike the situation then, nowadays jobs in Malta are available not only for Maltese but also foreigners. He told those gathered that whenever he meets with members of the Maltese diaspora, they would tell him that they had to leave the country to seek better employment opportunities abroad.

After attending the General Assembly of the United Nations in New York, Muscat paid a visit to companies that are considering investing in Malta. He was accompanied by Economy Minister Chris Cardona, Malta Enterprise CEO Kurt Farrugia, Government Whip Byron Camilleri as well as other representatives.

The Prime Minister’s wife, Michelle Muscat, and his children were also in attendance at the meeting with the Maltese living in Toronto.

According to the government statement, there are several Canadian businesses considering investing in Malta, including some which have entered into a preliminary agreement to start operating here.

Medical cannabis companies have already shown their interest in investing in Malta.
