Their assistance was always instrumental in helping to facilitate and contribute towards further development of the already very strong business relationships, in the interest of both countries. Therefore, we are looking forward to this year’s business forum which is going to be very special,” added Mr Bugeja.

The Business Forum will see keynote speeches delivered by Nancy Caruana, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry for the Economy, Investment & Small Business, H.E. Mme. Brigitte Curmi, Ambassador of France in Malta and H.E. Mme. Helga Mizzi, Maltese Ambassador in France.
