Budget 21: The Right Vaccine for the Hospitality Industry?


The next Horeca Malta webinar will be held on Tuesday 20th October from 3:00 to 4:00pm.


The annual budget has always been a keen discussion point to our local economy. Every year it is awaited with great anticipation. However, the interest this year is possibly higher than at any other time. In the past few months several mini-budgets were needed to ensure the economy could withstand the challenges brought about by COVID-19. Now the country needs plans and initiatives to guide it to a new period of sustainable growth.


The hospitality industry is possibly the sector that needs the most support to come out of the current situation. Expectations are high, but will the budget be able to deliver the right mix of support and incentives to kick-start the sector again?


The day after the presentation of the budget our panel of experts will review the measures and initiatives put forward by the Finance Minister and evaluate whether these are the right tonic to make a comeback.


The webinar will include messages from Robert Arrigo, Opposition Tourism Spokesperson and Gavin Gulia, MTA Chairman. Confirmed panellists are:


Philip Fenech – Deputy President, Malta Chamber of SMEs
Joe Muscat – Chief Executive Officer, Gozo Tourism Association
Reuben Buttigieg – President, Association of Catering Establishments
Roderick Grech – Managing Director, BCMS Business and Finance Consultants


The discussion will be moderated by Terence Mirabelli, Editor of Horeca Malta magazine.
