On the 6 September 2022, Joseph Borg, as President of INSULEUR attended the EUROCHAMBERS Affiliated and Correspondent Members Meeting.
In his intervention Joseph Borg highlighted how islands were hit very badly by the COVID-19 pandemic given that they are highly dependent on tourism and for most islands tourism is more than 50 per cent of the economy. He also mentioned that although travel has stated a good recovery on islands, the war has hit energy costs resulting in higher transportation costs. This is starting to hit islands very badly once again.
