The Chamber constantly champions the need for competitiveness enhancing measures with the pertinent authorities in Malta as well as in Brussels. For the purposes of delivering on its mission, it has a well resourced in-house policy department that engages in desk research which complements feedback generated through its internal network of vertical and horizontal policy committees for the production of policy position papers.
The Chamber is the longest established Social Partner in Malta – having been established in 1848. It is the only Employer organisation that is recognised by the Laws of Malta (Commercial Code Cap 13). As a result of its merger with the FOI in 2009, it is also the strongest represented Employer body on such national boards as the MCESD, ERB, ME, MEUSAC and others.
Housed within its historic Exchange Buildings in Valletta, the Chamber serves as a natural home for SMEs and large enterprises alike and across all business sectors. Through its active internal structures, the Chamber enables effective communication across all stakeholders as well as ensuring a series of value-added services to business not least in the field of internationalisation.
The Chamber is affiliated to Eurochambres and BusinessEurope. It is also part of the Enterprise Europe Network which enables it to offer practical value-added services to members and clients through the support of around 600 business support organisations from more than 64 countries, with the principal aim of helping small companies seize the unparalleled business opportunities in the EU Single Market.
The Malta Chamber is certified by the Malta Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority to comply with the requirements of MSA ISO 9001:2015
