The President of the GBC, Joseph Borg delivered a presentation during the 1st meeting of the Permanent Committee of Gozo Affairs, chaired by Hon Dr Justyne Caruana.  The Committee was approved unanimously by the Maltese Parliament on the 28th April 2020.  It had been originally proposed through a Private Member’s motion, presented by the members of Parliament of the Opposition on the 30th October 2019.

The subject of the 1st meeting which was held on the 5th May was the impact of the COVID-19 on Gozo, and the way forward.  During this session Joseph Borg was able to present a number of measures the GBC is currently proposing and putting forward for Government’s consideration, to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 on Gozitan enterprises.  While the main emphasis was on the short-term measures, Joseph Borg also put forward the GBC’s position on what should be the way forward in terms of a long-term vision for Gozo post COVID-19.
