Malta’s President George Vella left Malta on Tuesday (today) for Geneva, Switzerland, to address the World of Work Summit 2023: Social Justice for All organised by the United Nation’s International Labour Organisation (ILO).

Houngbo, and with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi, as well as with the Prime Minister of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina and the Prime Minister of Tunisia Najla Bouden.
