PL's energy project 'doable' - MDA
The political discussion on electricity tariffs being held in the country after the Labour Party unveiled its proposals on Tuesday was positive because the lowering of these tariffs could be the key to a stronger, more vibrant Maltese economy, the Malta Development Association said.
It said in a statement that the positive effect of cheaper tariffs on the scale indicated by the Labour Party on the Maltese economy would undoubtedly be enormous and stimulate the business sector to contribute further for the good of Maltese society and its further progress.
The MDA said it appreciated the Labour Party’s effort to put together its proposal and felt that this was a serious attempt to solve the problem through a doable project, although it was preoccupied on how possible it was for the project to be completed within two years.
“It is with pleasure that the MDA notes also that, although the country is at the start of an election campaign, the Labour proposal has led to a mature discussion on the energy sector, to the extent that it appears that there is agreement on the need for something to be done on the current electricity tariffs and on the importance of involving the private sector in the energy generation field.”
