Malta Communications Authority (MCA) CEO Jesmond Bugeja has expressed the authority’s aim to promote the advancement of digital services for the benefit of Maltese businesses.
This came as the MCA signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with The Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry to assist local firms in ensuring they are aware of the latest updates in the digitalisation space.
“We are pleased to be working closely with The Malta Chamber to advance digital services and promote regulatory compliance for the benefit of Maltese businesses,” Mr Bugeja said.
“This MoU represents an important step forward in our efforts to support businesses as they navigate the complex and constantly evolving digital landscape, and we look forward to collaborating with the Chamber to achieve our shared goals,” he added.
The agreement was signed by Marisa Xuereb and Marthese Portelli, President and CEO at The Malta Chamber respectively, and also Mr Bugeja.
Ahead of the signing, Ms Xuereb said that The Malta Chamber is “pleased to be developing such a collaborative partnership”, which is built on “mutual interest to advance digital services for the benefit of Maltese businesses and the economy”.
Through this agreement, both parties will work towards sharing knowledge and expertise by providing joint education and awareness initiatives with the aim of keeping businesses “abreast with digital services developments and related regulations”. It will particularly assist businesses in ensuring they are up to date with the field of digitalisation, especially when it comes to eCommerce regulations, websites and apps accessibility, trust services, and the Digital Service Act.
