She explained the role of the Ministry and the particular challenges presented in the field of employment. The Minister gave an idea of what will be the core of the work of the Ministry in relation to the Eco-Gozo vision for this island.
Apart from the Maltese and Gozitan students who met with Minister Debono, there were students from Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Albania, Macedonia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey, Tanzania, China, Czech Republic, Iceland, United Kingdom, Romania, Russia and Slovenia.
