MSI EMEA Regional Meeting 2013 held in Malta and hosted by Chetcuti Cauchi
An interesting event took place in Malta this weekend, between the 10 – 12 May 2013.
MSI, the Global Alliance of Independent Legal and Accounting Firms, held its EMEA Regional Meeting in Malta with the event being attended by over 70 delegates. The event held a very varied substantive Programme and presented a very interesting social and cultural Programme too. The Malta hosting firm was Chetcuti Cauchi, the law firm representing the region of Malta within the network.
The meeting was opened by Hon Dr Edward Zammit Lewis who confirmed the government’s objective to create more quality jobs in the ICT, iGaming and the financial services industries and remarked that the choice of Malta as the location to hold this conference certainly befits the role that Malta’s Financial Services sector has had over the past years. This was thanks to the country’s national policy that has bipartisanship support in the local political arena.
Franco Cini, managing partner of MSI audit member FG Audit commented “Malta is a thriving European financial centre and is attracting serious international players in financial services, aviation, maritime and online gaming sectors.”
Dr Jean-Philippe Chetcuti, managing partner of Malta legal and tax advisory firm Chetcuti Cauchi Advocates also commented: “Given the surge in foreign direct investment Malta is experiencing at this time, we are thrilled our network of international business advisors has chosen Malta for its international conference.”
Being part of such an exclusive network opens opportunities for firms to benefit from a pool of international expertise that would otherwise not be available.
