Agreements with reputable credit rating agency Fitch to assess the state of Malta’s finances were published this week with details on the fees paid redacted. Finance Minister Edward Scicluna tabled in Parliament copies of the agreements with Fitch by both the Nationalist and Labour administrations in reply to a request by Nationalist MP Simon Busuttil. The agreements note that the credit rating exercise was being sought by the Maltese government and that it was based on information supplied to the agency by the government. “Fitch is not your adviser and is not providing you or any other party with any financial advice or any legal, auditing, accounting, appraisal, valuation or actuarial services. A rating should not be viewed as a replacement for such advice or services,” the agreement says. “You warrant that all information you or your agents provide to Fitch, as of the date such information is provided, (i) contains no untrue statement of material fact and does not omit a material fact necessary in order to make such information, in light of the circumstances in which it was provided, not misleading and (ii) does not infringe or violate the intellectual property rights of a...
Mater Dei Hospital is expected to significantly cut its carbon dioxide emissions this year after replacing 14 air-cooled chillers with higher-efficiency ones which require less gas to cool the air. The replacement project saw engineers swap out old chillers which were installed when the hospital first opened in 2003 with new ones over two phases, with seven chillers swapped out in each phase. Apart from the significant emissions reductions – the equivalent of installed more than 3,700 300Wp-rated photovoltaic panels – replacing the chillers is also expected to cut the hospital’s electricity bill by around €1.1 million every year. Air-cooled chillers are used to control air temperatures throughout Mater Dei’s 300,000 sqaure metres of space. The project, which began last year, will cost €6.5 million when maintenance costs for the new chillers over a 15-year period is factored in, the Health Ministry said. “The ministry takes pride in pushing forward a greener agenda that will guarantee a healthier environment to benefit us all,” said Health Minister Chris Fearne. “We see this as part of our mission firmly believing that prevention is, was and will remain better than cure.” Mater...
There are no plans for Malta MedAir to become a fully-fledged airline, Tourism Minister Konrad Mizzi said on Saturday. Earlier this week, Times of Malta reported how Air Malta staff was concerned that MedAir would be taking over certain operations from Air Malta while shrinking the national airline’s business. A move to launch a new helicopter service between Malta and Gozo accentuated concerns, with Air Malta staff citing it as a concrete example of how MedAir, run by former Malta Tourism Authority CEO Paul Bugeja, could threaten the national airline. Asked about the issue on Saturday, Dr Mizzi said there were no plans for the new company to offer services in direct competition with Air Malta. He confirmed that MedAir would be providing a Malta-Gozo helicopter service but insisted the only reason the company was recruiting technical staff was because it needed to acquire certification required for its operations to be code-shared. A code-share agreement is a common aviation agreement whereby airlines agree to sell each other's tickets on some routes. Air Malta was «demanding» that MedAir obtain IOSA (IATA operational safety audit) accreditation, he said. Part of the...
Hundreds of thousands of pro-Europeans from across Britain convened in London on Saturday calling for another referendum on EU membership with the country mired in political paralysis over Brexit. Opponents of Britain's departure from the European Union gathered near Hyde Park at noon and prepared to converge on Westminster in what organisers are calling the «Put it to the people march». Speakers including Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, London Mayor Sadiq Khan and opposition Labour deputy leader Tom Watson will then address the crowds at a mass rally outside parliament. «Brexit is a complete and utter mess,» Khan said on the eve of the event. «I'll be marching on Saturday with people from every part of our country -- from every walk of life -- to demand that the British people get the final say.» The protest -- set to be one of the largest in the capital in decades -- comes after EU leaders this week granted a delay to Brexit, prompting Prime Minister Theresa May to make a renewed bid to win MPs' backing for her divorce deal. However she faces daunting odds with lawmakers deadlocked for months over how to implement the 2016 referendum vote to leave, reflecting...
