Malta Independent - - BUSINESS & FINANCE -

The chair­man of Malta’s In­sti­tute of Di­rec­tors (IoD) James Satar­i­ano has held a meet­ing with the new Bri­tish High Com­mis­sioner Stu­art Gill, OBE. Mr Satar­i­ano was ac­com­pa­nied by the In­sti­tute’s honorary sec­re­tary James Ar­rigo and com­mu­ni­ca­tions direc­tor Ed­win Ward.

The del­e­ga­tion dis­cussed a num­ber of topics with Mr Gill and ex­changed views on busi­ness is­sues. Mr Gill ex­plained to Mr Satar­i­ano and his fel­low Coun­cil mem­bers the broad pol­icy that the UK pres­ence in Malta will fol­low and the ways in which the Bri­tish High Com­mis­sion will col­lab­o­rate with the IoD, con­tin­u­ing a her­itage that has lasted for three decades.

Mr Satar­i­ano out­lined a num­ber of ini­tia­tives that the IoD will be un­der­tak­ing in 2016 and 2017, in­clud­ing be­ing a co-or­gan­iser of the 20th Euro­pean Cor­po­rate Gover­nance Con­fer­ence in con­junc­tion with the Euro­pean Con­fed­er­a­tion of Direc­tor As­so­ci­a­tions (ecoDa) and EY EAME, which will be held in Malta next April.

He said that this con­fer­ence would be at­tended by more than 250 in­ter­na­tional di­rec­tors and chair­men from the largest cap com­pa­nies across the EU.

“We are de­lighted to be work­ing closely with ecoDa on a range of is­sues, un­der­tak­ing re­search and con­tribut­ing to their Pol­icy Com­mit­tee as well as coor­gan­is­ing ma­jor events like the 20th Euro­pean Cor­po­rate Gover­nance Con­fer­ence,” Mr Satar­i­ano said. “We will be un­der­tak­ing an out­reach pro­gramme to lo­cal stake­hold­ers over the next three months to gather sup­port for the event and will be rep­re­sented at the 19th Euro­pean Cor­po­rate Gover­nance Con­fer­ence in Bratislava later this month by our Com­mu­ni­ca­tions direc­tor Ed­win Ward, who is also our rep­re­sen­ta­tive in Brus­sels with ecoDa.”
