IN a statement on Tuesday, the Federated Association of Travel & Tourism Agents (FATTA) said it welcomed the news that Government is forging ahead with the City Gate project.
“This is an ambitious and long awaited project which should give Valletta the majestic entrance it so deserves. The project will certainly enhance product Malta from a tourism perspective, and is possibly highest on the most needed list. The eventual relocation of Parliament to the site of the opera house will enable the Grandmaster’s Palace to be showcased more effectively to visitors.” the association said.
According to FATTA, the plans for this project to kick-start the overall regeneration of the capital city by 2018 would also be a massive step to revive Valletta a hub of culture and heritage.
FATTA said it also welcomes Government’s commitment to complete the project within four years and augurs that the deadlines will be met.
