There will be further investment in the hospital, including chemotherapy services. A dementia unit will be set up as well as a half-way house for people with mental problems. There will also be a night shelter for the elderly.

Unemployed Gozitans will also receive training.

Works will continue on the Zewwieqa Waterfront project and the restoration of the Citadella. The government is also planning to start work on a  new breakwater in Marsalforn and a waterfront in Xlendi.
