Finance Minister Clyde Caruana and Parliamentary secretary for Social Dialogue Andy Ellul met with the social partners to discuss the National Reform Programme 2022.
In this report all European members report all the measures that are being implemented and being planned to be implemented to increase employment and economic growth along with plans to prevent and correct macro-economic imbalances. This document also outlines how member states plan to abide by EU Fiscal regulations and also report on the progress made on the recommendations outlined to member countries.
Minster Caruana said that this reform programme outlines more reductions in emissions, and also how our economy must be reformed to address this in view of the changing world due to the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. However the European Union kept all environmental targets the same and so more effort is needed to reach these targets.
Minister Caruana also spoke about inflation and said that the government will continue doing whatever is possible so that our economy is safeguarded.
Parliamentary Secretary Andy Ellul, in his first address to the MCESD, recognized all the important work that is being carried out by MCESD and said that his aim is for social dialogue to be strengthened and all social partners will be part of all the decisions that will be taken in the various economic sectors.
