Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

The vision of the first National Housing System in Malta has been launched on Wednesday by the Minister for Social Accommodation Roderick Galdes. The launch was also addressed by the Director of the Center for Housing Policy at the University of York, Professor Nicholas Pleace.

Minister Galdes said that people will be put at the centre of the national housing system to assure that families need adequate housing to live their lives with dignity and satisfaction.

He added that more than fifty different stakeholders will contribute towards the first housing system during workshops organised by the Ministry for Social Accommodation, during which the main themes of the first housing system in our country will be discussed.

The Stakeholders include academics from the Faculty of Architecture and Social Wellbeing within the University of Malta, the Malta Developers Association, the Richmond Foundation and YMCA amongst others.

The consultation has also been extended to foreign professors with extensive experience in shaping housing policy.
