Salvo Grima Ship Supply has participated as an exhibitor at IMPA 2019, the annual maritime procurement event held between 10th and 11th September 2019
IMPA London is the world-leading exhibition and conference for maritime purchasing and supply chain professionals.
Every year, over 2,000 key decision makers attend IMPA from over 70 countries to do business, network with old and new partners, and gain key insights into the industry.
The Malta Free Zones Act of 2019 has been launched, enabling the Malta Government to designate areas as free zones in Malta. This development has been welcomed as a step in the right direction to facilitate international trade.
Salvo Grima Group chairman Robert Aquilina was actively involved in the consultation process relating to this Act whilst chairing the Malta Chamber of Commerce and Industry‘s Logistics Committee.
The Act proposes the establishment of an authority to administer the free zones, whilst offering assistance to the enterprises operating within this sector, creating new opportunities in terms of high-quality jobs and commercial activity.
“Our location at the commercial crossroads between Europe and Africa gives us a unique advantage,” said Economy Minister Chris Cardona, who presented the bill in Parliament. “This law will pave the way for Malta to become a centre of excellence for the logistics industry.”
Salvo Grima Group is proud to support a marathon swim being organised by fund-raising organisation Wave of Change. Wave of Change volunteers, including Number Twelve General Manager Andrew Azzopardi will be swimming around the island of Gozo on 29th June 2019 to raise funds for environmental charities.
We wish them the best of luck!
