PZS5GzNl400x400

The Maltese Italian Chamber of Commerce, the only Chamber of Commerce in Malta recognised by the Italian government, representative of an important Maltese and Italian business community, is shocked and completely dissociates itself from the claims published in the national media and attributed to the Minister of Economy of Malta the Hon.Silvio Schembri.

We would like to remind the Minister that all expats in Malta have contributed and contribute every day to the success of the Maltese economy and to the well-being of all. And also, that EU citizens are free to move and work in European countries without a work permit, the idea of sending them back to their country will be in breach of the EU law.

In Malta there are thousands of companies owned by expats and Italians, among the most important companies in terms of turnover and number of employees. These are owned by foreigners who in recent years have made huge investments on the island in various sectors including gaming, industrial, technological, bars, restaurants and more and who have employed and given work to thousands of Maltese and foreign citizens, as a tax payers the latter have the same rights as Maltese citizen.

In this moment we should be thinking about protecting everyone's health, ruther than dividing us. As everyone knows and repeats, the coronavirus does not distinguish between nationalities.

We are sure that the minister's words are the result of a misunderstanding.
