Watch: PM receives swimmer Neil Agius at Castille

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Prime Minister Robert Abela this morning welcomed long-distance swimmer Neil Agius to Castille.

Agius swam successfully from Sicily to Malta last Friday. The swim took just under 30 hours and covered over 100 kilometres.

During the meeting, Abela expressed his gratitude for the initiative taken by Agius to further raise awareness for the importance of a cleaner sea and to make the public more conscious of the consequences of plastic disposal in the sea.

Agius explained the challenges he faced during the swim to the Prime Minister and expressed his gratitude for the support he found for the ‘Wave of Change’ initiative against the dumping of plastic in the sea.
