BUDGET 2015

GRTU APPROVED PV SCHEME

GRTU prepares proposals for waste directive

GRTU is putting together its proposals for the replacement of the despised eco-tax – a promise made by the government in the last Budget – but there are still numerous hurdles.

The tax has to be removed by September 2015.

The issue has been delegated to the Environment Ministry, which will also have to find a way to put into force the environmental contributions Malta should be imposing through the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive.

GRTU requests extension on the issue of utilisation of roof space - Operators are asked not to reply to MIP for now

Economic operators housed within MIP property, where the roof space is available to MIP, have been asked in writing on the 9th March 2015 by the same MIP to give a definite reply if they are interested to lease the roof by the 27th of May as otherwise this may be made available to third parties.
 
GRTU is currently in discussions with Minister Chris Cardona and the MIP in order to extend such period as we believe it is too little for an enterprise to get the required quotations and work out the viability of renting the roof space.

Malta’s Economic Future

GRTU President Paul Abela and GRTU Deputy President Philip Fenech attended this week’s business breakfast organised by The Malta Business weekly which was addressed by Opposition leader Dr Simon Busuttil.

During his speech Dr Busuttil mentioned that in the harsh international economic recession, Malta’s economy consistently registers the best economic growth rates along with Germany. For this to continue it is essential that businesses continue to compete and invest to get new customers. This will also allow the country to preserve its social model which combines Malta’s economic growth with the living standards and work conditions of the Maltese people.
