The Malta Business Bureau represents the Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry and the Malta Hotels and Restaurants Association (MHRA) in Brussels and Malta. It does so by liaising directly with the European institutions, the Maltese Permanent Representation and with umbrella organisations such as BusinessEurope, EUROCHAMBRES and HOTREC on all policy and funding issues affecting Maltese business interests.
The MBB is currently composed of two offices, the Head Office in Malta and a Representation Office in Brussels, the operations of which are overseen by MBB Chief Executive Officer, Joe Tanti.
One of the main tasks of the organisation is to provide information to the Maltese business community with regards to EU policy and legislation related to their operations, while also keep them up to date in the sphere of EU funding for business. The MBB also has vast experience in EU funding projects which bring together the EU vision and the interests of the Maltese business community. In addition, the MBB has experience in the field of business support, especially through its Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) service-provision.
In Brussels, the organisation plays a key role in continuing to develop and strengthen the organisation’s ties with its Pan-European networks and European partners. The MBB’s technical experts make it possible for the organisation to thrive in its EU advocacy and policy work, continue following business-related EU policies and also make it possible to target legislative lobbying in Brussels with European legislators, allowing MBB to play an active role in the EU’s legislative process.
