The European Parliament's Petitions Committee and Simon Busuttil MEP organised a workshop on "Combating misleading business directories" in Brussels on 11 September.

Many enterprises, often small traders, fall victim to scams operated through misleading advertising and unwillingly sign up to an insertion into a business directory after having been led to believe that this would be free of charge - while in fact it is not.

As the Information and Communication Technologies Policy Support Programme (ICT-PSP) and the Eco-innovation programme have just closed their 2008 Call for applications, the CIPMalta National Contact Point is endeavouring to compile some statistics on the Maltese participation in these Calls. Thus, it would be greatly appreciated if you could let them know if you submitted application(s) to participate (as coordinator or partner) in any proposed ICTPSP or Eco-innovation projects.

GRTU Recommendations for Pre-Budget Discussions 2009

Current Situation Affecting the Development Industry

The GRTU, through surveys amongst its members, notes that the current situation in the development industry exhibits areas of concern in spite of a healthy employment scenario and a buoyant, still fragile tourism industry.  This scenario begs a concerted effort by all the stake holders involved.  GRTU notes that the issues involved, although widespread, can be split into 3 main categories:

  1. Oversupply in the residential component targeted for first time buyers
  2. Stringent banking conditions
  3. Indecision by prospective buyers although market correction is taking place

PROPOSAL FOR A COUNCIL DIRECTIVE ON IMPLEMENTING THE PRINCIPLE OF EQUAL TREATMENT BETWEEN PERSONS IRRESPECTIVE OF RELIGION OR BELIEF, DISABILITY, AGE OR SEXUAL ORIENTATION COM(2008)426 FINAL

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

1. GRTU cannot support the directive proposal in its present form since it would create legal uncertainty and additional burdens for the enter-prises in the commerce sector.

2. Instead of new legislation with an unclear outcome, GRTU advocates a non-legislative approach and is very much in favour of an intensified and structured dialogue between public authorities, business and all other stake-holders concerned, in particular NGOs representing those groups of society which are exposed to discrimination.
