New com­pany set up to paint ex­te­rior of planes - PM Mus­cat

Malta Independent - - NEWS - Noel Grima

In a short in­ter­view car­ried on One Ra­dio, Prime Min­is­ter Joseph Mus­cat re­ferred to the visit he and Dutch Prime Min­is­ter Rutte car­ried out last week to a Dutch com­pany that is set­ting up shop in Malta.

The com­pany paints the ex­te­rior of planes and it fits in with Lufthansa Tech­nik and SR who carry out checks on planes but do not paint ex­te­ri­ors.

Now this fa­cil­ity is also avail­able in Malta. The com­pany owns the largest hangar in the world where the gi­ant A380s can be painted.

The com­pany has been in­ter­ested in open­ing up in Malta since 2010 but noth­ing hap­pened un­der the PN ad­min­is­tra­tion. This one tack­led the is­sues and solved the prob­lems and the com­pany will, as from to­mor­row, be­gin pre­par­ing to set up in Malta. It will em­ploy 80 peo­ple.

Dr Mus­cat was heav­ily crit­i­cal of the Leader of the Op­po­si­tion. While he has been at­tack­ing him as be­ing neg­a­tive, he has now added the ap­pel­la­tion ‘shoots from the hip’.

Dr Busut­til has been say­ing we do not need the new power sta­tion but if that were the case, Malta would have to spend 700 hours, or a whole month, in the dark.

When he spoke about the Bud­get in Par­lia­ment, Dr Busut­til hinted he was against in­creas­ing the min­i­mum wage but then, when many or­gan­i­sa­tions ex­pressed sup­port, he switched and said he was in favour. So why did he not men­tion this in his Bud­get Speech in Par­lia­ment?
