The Malta Chamber notes with satisfaction the commencement of a consultation process on proposed amendments of commercial licenses regulations, announced by the Ministry for Fair Competition, SMEs and Consumers, Hon. Jason Azzopardi.
The Malta Chamber has been following this matter closely in recent weeks within its efforts in the area of better regulation. In this regard, it has for a number of years been making strong representations to reduce administrative burdens on businesses, particularly SMEs who are the worst affected by red tape. The Malta Chamber has reiterated its position for a more transparent and efficient process, which will save time and reduce costs for business.
The Malta Chamber hopes that any legislative change or administrative burden reduction is trickled down to clients facing staff in Government entities, to ensure a smooth transition to more efficient practices. In this regard, the recent establishment of Business First is a further step in the right direction.
The Malta Chamber will be participating in this consultation on behalf of it members and augurs that Government will be in a position to continue to simplify regulations and reduce administrative burdens for businesses. This would result in enabling Malta Chamber members to get on with business and generate prosperity for our Islands.
