For the third successive year, the MMF is proactively contributing its ideas towards the national budget consultation process.

Over the past days, the Forum presented an internally generated document containing 13 concrete, maritime-focused proposals to Minister Aaron Farrugia. Copies were also submitted to the Minister of Finance and the Opposition spokesperson for Maritime Affairs.

Within its overarching objective to “fly-the-flag” and promote the interests of the maritime community, the MMF is delighted to contribute its ideas towards policy issues of prime importance to the national agenda. With the feedback and technical input received from its members who constitute the Forum’s greatest resource, the MMF is more than confident of having provided a more than meaningful contribution to the budget consultation process despite not being officially recognised as a social partner or a member of the MCESD.
