Dr Abela remarked that “it is important for the Government to continue its support to businesses and families if we want to fight inflation.”
He also made referenced to increased tourism figures, showing a strong recovery post COVID-19. “Despite the positive results, we need to work harder to attract quality tourism. We need to find a balance between quality and quantity to have a sustainable tourism sector,” Dr Abela concluded.
