What kind of Malta would you like to live in once the COVID-19 pandemic is finally over?
Owen Bonnici, minister for the coordination of Malta’s post-pandemic strategy, has launched a document for public consultation and has pledged to take feedback into account when launching the final strategy in June.
It’s generic in scope and is basically asking three main questions:
- How do we improve quality of life and wellbeing?
- How do we sustain business and employment and drive a strong
- How do we remain resilient and competitive?
It also includes 12 general themes, such as adopting a more cohesive approach to urban planning, accelerating green investment and fostering a ‘can do’ business approach.
“The fact that we are in a position of strength does not mean that we should not look towards the future or refrain from thinking ahead, and that is why the government is focused on preparing a post-pandemic strategy,” Bonnici said. “A reflection on the kind of Malta we all want is crucial, as renewal is the key to continue being successful as a nation.”
Public consultation is open until 31st May and submissions can be made through this link.
