A proposal which will see Valletta shops remain open till 10pm every Friday is being considered, according the Valletta Mayor Alfred Zammit.

This morning, Prime Minister Robert Abela and Minister for the Economy, Investment and Small Businesses Silvio Schembri, accompanied by representatives from the Malta Chamber of Commerce, the Malta Chamber of SMEs, and Valletta Mayor Alfred Zammit, visited the business community in Republic Street, Valletta.

Prime Minister Robert Abela said that today’s visit served as an ideal opportunity to listen to what the business community has to say, understand their challenges, and identify a way forward.

“Today’s visiting tour sends a clear message that this government will be closer to the public, as well as to the commercial community. This served as a moment for discussion and an opportunity to listen attentively to ways on how the commercial community can be further strengthened. This is what we mean when as a government we emphasise on being pro-market”, said Prime Minister Abela.
