Along with the Permanent Representative he will prepare the prime minister's agenda for his meetings with EU institutions and follow-up the minutes of the meetings.

H will also coordinate issues relating to legal proceedings against Malta at a political level. 

The envoy was placed on pay scale three of special envoys.
