|Email item||Print item||
Professionals in Gozo – What are their needs? is the title of a project that has been carried out by the Malta Federation of Professional Associations (MFPA), in partnership with the Gozo Tourism Association (GTA).
The project was made possible through funds awarded by the Ministry for Gozo NGO Assistance Scheme.
The project organisers explained that given the impact that a professional has on the quality of life of the consumer and thus on society at large it is important to see that both the professional’s and the consumers’ needs are met through the delivery of a good quality service, promote the wellbeing of individuals and enhance economic growth.
They said that this project aimed to look closely at the professional in Gozo and evaluate what issues need to be addressed.
It also aimed at bringing together different professions who otherwise may not have opportunity to share experiences, needs and concerns, hence encouraging transdisciplinary discussion.
“Are there any differences between a professional in Gozo and that in Malta? Are there different needs? Does a professional set different working practises when delivering a service in Malta rather than in Gozo?” These issues were discussed during an initial seminar that was held in July, 2018.
A survey was then drafted to carry out research among professionals providing services in Gozo.
The organisers said that this research is currently being completed and the findings will be presented at a conference on Friday, the 23rd of November at the Grand Hotel, Gozo.
This initiative has been supported by the Ministry for Gozo NGO Assistance Scheme.
