Government and authorities in Malta in talks to allow the national carrier of Malta to commence flying to Ghana in the second quarter of 2020.
According to the Chief Executive of the Ghana Investment Promotion Center (GIPC), Yofi Grant Air Malta is ready to fly to Ghana as it looks forward to expanding its Africa reach.
Speaking to JoyBusiness at the Second Ghana and Malta Business Forum in Accra, Mr Grant said both countries will benefit from the deal if it finally goes through.
“We’re still in the process because we want to get the concept right as on the regulatory requirements, whether it will be airline operations involving a direct flight from Malta to Accra or a transit to the other African countries and vice versa,” Yofi said.
The decision to enter Ghana’s aviation industry is part of Malta’s efforts at opening up key sectors of its economy to the world.
Per the ongoing discussions, Malta will be given the opportunity to venture into airline operations, logistics and transportation in the country’s aviation space due to Ghana’s strategic business climate that makes it one of the best economies in the sub-Saharan Africa region.
On his part Minister of Economy, Investment and Small businesses of Malta Silvio Schembri believes that Ghana stands out among many African countries hence the decision to use Ghana in entering the African markets.
He further urged Ghanaian companies to take advantage of the new incentive given to Ghana-Maltese relations by the reciprocal high-level visits and invest in Malta.
The occasion was used to sign five agreements between selected agencies in Ghana and Malta.
The agreements between the governments of Ghana and Malta are on medicine, bilateral air services and aquaculture.
Silvio Schembri said “Ghana must consider Malta as its home in Europe; a partnership of growth and economic prospects. For example, we have an experienced and robust project management system. Once we build strong relations we can identify projects that both countries can collaborate and work on.”
