“We have the will and the drive to help our businesses continue to grow and expand in other countries overseas particularly in the Gulf region.” This was stated by the Minister for Foreign and European Affairs and Trade Ian Borg while he was addressing a seminar organised by Trade Malta on business opportunities in the United Arab Emirates and the surrounding area.
Minister Ian Borg stated that in the past months, as Minister responsible for International Trade, he had the opportunity to visit the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and in the near future even Qatar in order to have more discussions with the relative Authorities to create more opportunities for Maltese and Gozitan businesses.
Minister Borg reiterated how this region is going through a period of strong economic growth and is attracting innovative businesses. He went on to say how in the discussions he had during the past months, many countries aim to continue growing commercial relations with our country because they believe in the potential Malta has as a bridge between two essential continents.
Minister Ian Borg also presided over two agreements made through Trade Malta which will continue to help in their operation.
