The Gozo Tourism Association, on behalf of its members coming from its seven sectors, in a statement today referred to the Government’s announcement, that Representatives from the Gozo Regional Committee, will sit on the Council for Social and Economic Development (MCESD), once draft amendments to be presented next week in Parliament by the Minister for Justice, Public Consultation and the Family, are approved.
The Gozo Tourism Association, said that as one of the founder members of the Gozo Regional Committee it “welcomes this new development, as a very important and positive step towards more comprehensive Gozitan representation, in a very important forum like the MCESD.”
“This inclusion within the MCESD will be the cohesive Gozitan voice, since the Gozo Regional Committee encompasses the Gozitan constituted bodies namely the Gozo Tourism Association and the Gozo Business Chamber, and representatives of the Gozitan workers from the Trade Unions, as well as representatives from the civil society coming from the local councils, the Gozitan NGOS, and the local church, the GTA said.
The Gozo Tourism Association concluded by saying that it “believes that the GRC representatives will bring forth to the MCESD discussion table the regional, social and economic concerns in a unified approach.”
