Forum asks government to mitigate the burdens
The Forum Unions Maltin has appealed to the government to reduce the burdens being shouldered by Maltese workers, families and pensioners in the next budget.
Representatives of the Forum this morning had a meeting with Finance Minister Tonio Fenech during which the Forum's proposals for the budget were discussed.
The Forum told the minister the government should concentrate on activities which improved the Gross Domestic Product, the deficit and productivity so that wealth would be generated. However, the budget should also see how to overcome social and real poverty.
The Forum appealed to the minister to do his utmost for the confederation to start forming part of the Malta Council for Economic and Social Development.
