‘We are a new actor in the market which will, through innovation, provide new solutions which will reach everyone’s financial status’ he said. 

Jake is a lawyer who has, for the past six years, contributed directly in local politics related to accommodation, with particular emphasis on regulation of affordability measures and rent. 

Lately, he carried out work in relation to protection of children’s rights in Malta whilst being a principal actor in the introduction of the National Living Income in Malta. He also served as a European Parliament political consultant between 2019 and 2021. 

Minister for Social and Affordable Accommodation Roderick Galdes wished all the best for Jake, eager to begin his work with Azzopardi.

During a recent interview at PwC’s Tech Week, the importance of technology and STEM subjects general in the world of employment was discussed.

The central focus of Tech was innovation & digitisation, and how these phenomena make our lives better as employees, parents and individual.

One of PwC’s recent studies revealed how two out of three jobs that primary students would be doing in the future do not even exist anymore. It was argued that, rather than restricting children with a typical mindset towards traditional jobs like doctors and lawyers, which will still remain relevant, children should be guided to be open towards new subjects.

Developments in the technological world continue to make a huge difference and impact on society, and moreover, the business community in general.

The PwC Tech Week is an entire week dedicated to the idea of technological innovation being used in all facets of business to ensure organisations are up-to-date and future-proof, and that insights and outcomes are more intelligent and quicker to define winning strategies.

As technology continues to develop rapidly around the globe, hundreds of millions of manually-conducted jobs will continue to be affected by the boom.

During the PwC Malta Tech Week, a spokesperson for the Assurance, Tax and Advisory brand stated that technology like artificial intelligence, blockchain, virtual reality and augmented reality are at the forefront of most modern industries.

Such a phenomenon shines a light on the importance of technology and training oneself in such areas so as to remain relevant in the future.

That being said, it was also highlighted how no job existing today will fade into nothingness, but rather, will be affected by the aforementioned technology. An example of the unpredictable nature of technology would be the rapid rise of ChatGPT, a tool which no one expected to be as popular in mainstream culture a few months ago.

The PwC Tech Week is an entire week dedicated to the idea of technological innovation being used in all facets of business to ensure organisations are up-to-date and future-proof, and that insights and outcomes are more intelligent and quicker to define winning strategies.

Where do you think technology will take us in the next few months?

The current couples include Dale & Nicola, Sven & Gabrielle, Marie Christine & Kyle and Chelsea & Allen. Meanwhile, Shanice, Timmy and Andriy are not in a couple. 

Tonight will see another re-coupling taking place in the villa, which will put Nate and Soulayma’s claim to the test. However, according to the pair, a new couple will win the competition. 

Do you agree?
