Following the meeting of the Malta Council for Economic and Social Development on 24 May 2022, MCESD Chairman James Pearsall met with MEP Cyrus Engerer.
During this introductory meeting, the following topics were discussed: The impact of inflation on disposable income, cost of production and competitiveness; security of supplies; and the logistical issues of those products being imported and exported facing Maltese business.
The goal of this meeting was to address these issues of national importance which are being discussed in the wake of the war crisis in Ukraine and the difficulties arising, reach European levels.
This is another step towards further strengthening the social dialogue in our country so that immediate actions are taken after that the social partners are fully involved in the discussions that are taking place in the country.
The Chairperson of the MCESD stressed that such meetings and discussions continue to show how effective the social dialogue in Malta is, at both the formal and informal levels.
Mr Pearsall, following the request of the social partners, invited the Maltese MEPs to attend and participate in a formal MCESD meeting.
