WATCH: The call for a proactive entertainment sector reopening plan

The call for a proactive entertainment sector reopening plan

Speaking on L-Erbgha Fost il-Gimgha, events organiser Dr James Cassar expressed his concerns on the entertainment and cultural sector’s current situation. Despite acknowledging the positive work being done in terms of vouchers and tourism as Malta fights to recuperate from the pandemic’s impact, James stated how the cultural sector was the first to close and remained in the dark for a long period of time. He stated how people in the cultural sector were urged not to work due to the pandemic and that this is the livelihood of many people such as James.

Responding to questions asked by the host Mark Laurence Zammit, James stated that illegal parties are still ongoing and therefore posited the possibility of reopening organised and controlled events through which professional organisers can still work and still revive the sector. With Malta’s herd immunity and successful vaccine rollout, James pointed out that a plan is warranted.

James also asked whether the fear of case spikes was coming from the introduction of variants coming from abroad. He therefore asks why it is events that are closed whilst other sectors are up and running. Responding to James’ ideas was Tourism Minister Clayton Bartolo who, despite not being able to reveal the exact plan, did state that a roadmap for cultural reopening is in the works and will be announced in the coming days.

New restaurant incentive to double up vouchers

Restaurant owners who form part of ACE, the Association of Catering Establishments, announced that they will be doubling up the red Governmental vouchers as a value added move to attract patrons. The vouchers issued specifically for restaurants will be given out to be used on the next visit. The list of restaurants will be published in the coming days, but it is known that 40 of the 400 members have already signed in on the incentive.

Tourism Minister Clayton Bartolo praised the pro-active move undertaken by the hospitality sector, stating that this will encourage and strengthen domestic tourism. This second round of vouchers is expected to generate more revenue than the first round of vouchers, which generated more than €90 million from the €45 million round.
