Clyde Caruana Budget 5

Finance and Employment Minister Clyde Caruana has begun unveiling the Government’s national Budget for 2022 in Parliament.

The first Budget to be presented by Minister Caruana, speculation has been rife over several measures expected to be included. 

For the electric vehicle community, the expectation is that the Government will be raising the grant substantially.

Government has already confirmed it will not be raising new taxes, while Malta’s constituted bodies have made several proposals aimed at spurring the local workforce and meeting the many challenges that have come about since COVID, not least of which the worker shortage.
