GBC wants "drastic action" taken to address ferry service situationThe Gozo Business Chamber, in a statement has said that it is “extremely worried about the current Gozo Channel service on offer at the moment.”

It argued that “the time for consultations and discussions is up. The Chamber wants to see drastic immediate action to address this situation which has now reached a melting point.”

The Chamber stated that the “large number of vehicles crossing – not to mention unexpected “bomb scares” – is causing long queues and loss of time to those wanting to cross over for work and/or appointments (health, business, flights, etc).”

It claimed that it is “continually being inundated by phone calls from its members who are expressing their ire as they are missing their appointments for delivery and collecting their wares, apart from the fact that they have to face additional costs to pay overtime to the drivers for the extra time waiting at Mgarr and Cirkewwa.”

The Gozo Business Chamber concluded by saying that, it “felt strongly that this situation is being a detriment to business in Gozo as well as a disincentive for Maltese/Foreign investors who would think of investing in Gozo, besides acting as a counter action to the good image Gozo has been gaining.”
