PRESS RELEASE ISSUED BY THE OFFICE OF THE PRIME MINISTER

The latest bitter political attack on a $100 million American investment which will create 300 productive, quality jobs, is nothing but another desperate attempt to foil quality jobs from coming to Malta.

As a commercial entity Crane Currency, which works with some 60 governments including the US Government, chooses its own suppliers according to its commercial needs. Since equipment related to currency requires strict security features, Crane Currency purchases its equipment directly from the supplier and does not need agents. The Government is not aware of commercial decisions which are, or will be taken, by the company now or in the future.

This government will remain steadfast in providing investors and entrepreneurs the right environment to invest in our countries and keep providing better jobs for the Maltese and Gozitans.
