Institute of Directors visits new British High Commissioner
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.”
