Press Release 10th September 2014

Din l-Art Helwa notes that European Commissioner-designate Karmenu Vella has been assigned a portfolio which includes the Environment. While congratulating Mr Vella on his new portfolio, Din l-Art Helwa trusts that he will now devote his energy to championing environmental causes across the European Union, including in Malta where, ironically, environmental concerns rank very low on the government’s agenda.

Mr Vella has been tasked with the key policy objectives of the EU to ensure the sustainability of the environment, and the preservation of natural resources both on land and at sea. Din l-Art Helwa recognises the formidable challenge presented to Mr Vella, and will be closely following the progress of this sector.
