Respect of ODZ areas

The Malta Employers’ Association stated that, in principle, it is against any development outside ODZ areas. The association stated that although it is in favour of developing Malta’s potential to attract investment in education, something that it had formally proposed to the political parties in its memorandum before the last elections, this should be done in a manner that respects the country’s natural environment. There should be a concerted effort to attract quality educational institutions in sites that are already developed or dilapidated, of which there are many in Malta.

The Association has called on the MCESD to place this item on the agenda for discussion consultation with the social partners.
