Joseph Borg presided the General Assembly providing also an overview of the activities of the Presidency during the past six months, where various initiatives and activities were undertaken to continue to promote the agenda of islands. As President of INSULEUR he also delivered the introductory message during the Forum which focused on the ‘Impacts of Climate Change on the Economies of European Islands’.
He concluded his intervention by saying that “Europe would not be Europe without its islands. We all know this but our Europe must also realise this fact and as consequence draw up an Island pact as soon as possible and see to it that it is implemented including amongst others the problematics related to the adverse impact of climate change on islands.”
