For many of us, welcoming the New Year often also includes new resolutions, renewed ambitions and fresh challenges. The Maltese Islands welcomed 2017 with a busy political and national schedule. Over the next six months, Malta will hold the presidency of the Council of the European Union, an ambitious leadership role for the smallest member of the Union States.
Malta’s priorities will include Mediterranean issues such as migration, job creation, strengthening the single market, ‘reconnecting’ with the people by making the EU more relevant in their eyes, and improving the rights of minority groups.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Maritime affairs, with its potential for growth, competitiveness and job opportunities, will occupy an important part of the Island’s agenda with a special attention to the improvement of the state of the Mediterranean Sea.
This important assignment will put the Maltese Islands in the European spotlight, particularly over the next six months, when various delegations, events, meetings and conferences will be held in the capital Valletta and in various localities around the island.
Malta is not a new destination for the hosting of high level delegations, having hosted, amongst many other events, the Commonwealth Head of Governments Meeting [CHOGM] twice in the past ten years. The Islands offer the flexibilty to cater for events of all sizes, whilst the wide variety of venues offer diverse backdrops to set the ambiance of any event.
Once again the Maltese Islands will have the opportunity to strengthen her reputation as a leading MICE destination.
