Posting to social media, Minister for Environment, Energy and Enterprise Miriam Dalli announced how Malta has once again registered a decrease in unemployment.
She went on to highlight how the pharmaceutical and life science sectors offer new quality jobs and opportunities to over 1,100 people in Malta. ‘This means that in these sectors we saw a 7.3% increase in work opportunities throughout the pandemic’ said Dalli.
The Minister gave credit to the resilient industry and the diversification of our country’s economic model for this success. This follows the inauguration of a direct foreign investment €16 million from the company A2W Pharma.
The company chose Malta to expand its operations and research and develop new innovative products in the pharmaceutical and science sectors. The company Amino Chemicals, which has been working in our country for the past 30 years, will be able, through this investment, to open a subsidiary company to produce products related to medicinal cannabis.
Malte Enterprise Chief Executive Kurt Farrugia exclaimed how through this medicinal cannabis sector, even more opportunities will be created. He explained how Malta is becoming part of a massive international chain in this sector.
