The Minister for Gozo, on her part, made a commitment to “provide all possible assistance for the betterment of the sector.”
At the same time, Dr Caruana emphasised the need for the sector to have a fully professional approach and fully transparent working methods.

Dr Caruana concluded by assuring Mr Grech and the rest of the Gozo NGOs Association, of the Gozo Ministry’s backing as long as the Association was fully compliant with all Maltese legislation, as well as all the requirements and working methods demanded by the Council of the Voluntary Sector and those of the Office of the Commissioner of the Voluntary Sector.
