Ste­fano Mal­lia ap­pointed on Brexit Ad­vi­sory Group by Euro­pean em­ploy­ers

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

Ste­fano Mal­lia has been ap­pointed by the Em­ploy­ers Group of the Euro­pean Eco­nomic and So­cial Com­mit­tee (EESC) as one of three rap­por­teurs on the Brexit Ad­vi­sory Group. The Group has been tasked to mon­i­tor and re­port on Brexit as the process con­tin­ues to un­fold. The other two mem­bers are David Sears from the UK and Vladimira Drablova from the Czech Re­pub­lic.

The Em­ploy­ers Group within the EESC have iden­ti­fied Brexit as one of the key is­sues that will have a bear­ing on the fu­ture of the EU. It there­fore felt the need to put in place a group of three ex­perts to mon­i­tor the is­sue closely and give the Em­ploy­ers Group an in­formed in­ter­pre­ta­tion of how the process is un­fold­ing and the pos­si­ble im­pli­ca­tions as­so­ci­ated with it.

Com­ment­ing on his ap­point­ment, Ste­fano Mal­lia said: “There is no doubt that Brexit will have pro­found im­pli­ca­tions on the im­me­di­ate and long-term fu­ture of the EU. It’s im­por­tant that, as em­ploy­ers, we un­der­stand th­ese im­pli­ca­tions so that we can im­ple­ment strate­gies that min­imise any pos­si­ble neg­a­tive ef­fects of Brexit. Keep­ing in mind that the UK is an im­por­tant trade part­ner not only for the EU as a whole but also for Malta in par­tic­u­lar, I am of course de­lighted to have been ap­pointed.”
