“We are going through a period of remarkable instability following two major black swan events,” says Edward Rizzo, Director at Rizzo, Farrugia & Co. (Stockbrokers) Ltd in the cover story of Business Now magazine’s summer 2022 edition, which has officially hit the shelves.

With the pandemic and the war in Ukraine having brought about an unprecedented reality: a sharp increase in global energy prices, significant deterioration in public finances, high inflation, supply chain shortages across sectors and a serious dearth in human resources, the cover story features the country’s leading financial experts to provide some insight into yet another year of instability.

It also discusses the recovery and future of the tourism and hospitality sector with Malta Hotels and Restaurants Association President Tony Zahra, and takes a look behind the scenes of one of the island’s leading groups of companies, Vassallo Group, in Industry Greats.

On a lighter note, Business Now magazine’s summer edition also covers the unique design of the SAW Factory and Offices, which earned it the award for Commercial and Public Buildings at the recent MASP Awards.

It also shines a spotlight on modern culinary trends at Malta’s best eateries through a number of remarkably reconstructed local traditional dishes at Michelin-rated restaurants.

Artist Francesca Balzan

Rounding off the lifestyle element, Business Now magazine delves into the world of artist Francesca Balzan to talk about her creative impetus and journey.

Produced by Content House Group, one of Malta’s largest media organisations owning and managing over 20 media brands in the online and print sectors, Business Now magazine is the sister brand to BusinessNow.mt.

Core members of the Business Now magazine team include Editor Sarah Muscat Azzopardi, Head of Sales and Business Development Marie Claire Camilleri, Senior Operations & Accounts Executive Sue Ann Pisani, and Creative Director and Design Nicholas Cutajar.
