The Malta Business Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

MCESD has held a meet­ing to dis­cuss the con­sol­i­dated doc­u­ment which in­cluded all the pro­pos­als put for­ward by the so­cial part­ners for the 2018 bud­get.

Min­is­ter for EU Af­fairs and Equal­ity He­lena Dalli was present for this meet­ing and de­scribed this ex­er­cise as a struc­tured way which gives the op­por­tu­nity to ev­ery­one to take part in the con­sul­ta­tive process.

"It is through co­op­er­a­tion and con­sul­ta­tion that the gov­ern­ment can move for­ward with the rele- vant stake­hold­ers," Min­is­ter Dalli said.

MCESD will be pre­sent­ing a synthesis of 130 pro­pos­als. Among the main pro­pos­als, MCESD wants a big­ger bud­get for the hu­man cap­i­tal, im­prove­ment in in­fra­struc­ture and bet­ter trans­port ser­vices.

This doc­u­ment will be handed to the Min­istry of Fi­nance to­gether with re­ports from MCESD and the Civil So­ci­ety Com­mit­tee. MCESD will also hold a meet­ing with the Min­is­ter for Fi­nance.
