Malta Independent - - NEWS -

The Sec­re­tary for Trans­port and Hous­ing of the Hong Kong Spe­cial Ad­min­is­tra­tive Re­gion of the Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of China, Pro­fes­sor Anthony Che­ung, vis­ited Malta to sign an air ser­vices agree­ment be­tween Malta and Hong Kong.

Min­is­ter for Trans­port and In­fra­struc­ture Joe Mizzi signed on be­half of the Mal­tese govern­ment dur­ing the sign­ing cer­e­mony at the Min­istry for Trans­port and In­fra­struc­ture.

This agree­ment en­hances the bi­lat­eral re­la­tions be­tween Malta and Hong Kong and pro­vides the nec­es­sary reg­u­la­tory frame­work for the op­er­a­tions of air ser­vices whilst en­sur­ing safety and se­cu­rity.

The en­try into force of this agree­ment al­lows the air­lines of both sides to be able to op­er­ate flights be­tween Malta and Hong Kong as well as strengthen the co­op­er­a­tion be­tween them in the area of air trans­porta­tion.

This agree­ment is in line with govern­ment’s pol­icy to con­tinue to in­crease connectivity by air.
