A delegation from the Yachting Services Trade Section led by Chairman Wilfred Sultana recently met the Prime Minister, the Hon. Dr Lawrence Gonzi at his office in Auberge de Castille. The PM was accompanied by the Minister for Competitiveness and Communications, the Hon. C:ensu Galea.
The delegation included Hon. Secretary John A. Huber and Executive Committee Members Mr Pierre Balzan and Mr Mark Vassallo. They were accompanied by the Chamber’s Senior Executive – PR, Policy & Planning, Mr Reuben Sciberras. Mr Sultana introduced the delegation after which Mr Huber presented a Memorandum which the YSTS compiled for political parties with suggestions and proposals to be included in the electoral programmes for the upcoming general elections next month. Mr Huber highlighted three main areas of action, namely the need for more berthing, the need for more hard-standing facilities, and the issue of privatisation of MMA marinas.
The Prime Minister welcomed the suggestions and said that the Chamber’s Yachting Services Trade Section and government are on the same wavelength in so far as the need to continue highlighting the importance of this sector as part of the Maltese economy. He said that the authorities recognised the priorities mentioned by the YSTS and that the new legislature should see further action on this front.
