In this post we’ll be meeting Mr Andrew Zammit, Director at Distinct Homes and member of the Gozo Business Chamber, for a short interview as part of the #MakeYourVoiceHeard campaign.
When did you join the GBC and why?
I joined he GBC around ten years ago. I was approached by the then CEO/President the late Mr Joe Grech.
What are the benefits of being a member of the GBC?
I am in business and so encounter many issues that sometimes are very difficult to solve on one’s own. The GBC offers a forum where these issues can be discussed and possibly offer a solution. The GBC has also great access to official local and European authorities where business issues can be discussed and treated.
What do you expect of the GBC in the future?
I wish that the GBC will succeed in showing more successfully to the Gozo business sector its strong lobby and strength in analysing business issues and in supporting the business sector so that more business people will realize its utility and join it in greater numbers. I also wish that more members will be recruited in the GBC since this gives it more strength and a wider overview of the Gozo business picture.
Why should other businesses join?
The GBC is a very good partner for the businessman. A case in point is in the recent past, where it has shown clearly how hard it worked to achieve very good results for business people during the Covid 19 pandemic. Through discussions and negotiations, with other stakeholders, the GBC has succeeded in convincing the official authorities to issue great financial help to businesses across the whole business sector in Malta and Gozo. All businesses, even the smallest self-employed person, can have day-to-day issues that can be shared and solved by discussing them at such a strong entity as the GBC.
