On the 19 October 2021, Joseph Borg President of the Gozo Business Chamber and INSULEUR participated in the Greening the Islands (GTI) E-Convention opening session which this year is discussing ‘Technology, Policy and Finance to Boost Islands’s Sustainable Growth’. In his intervention he commented on the three areas that are being discussed in the GTI E-Convention.
With respect to technology and islands he highlighted how ‘technology has given us a great advantage. It has shown in real terms that for certain economic niches, the place from where you are working is not significant’. As regards the important role of policy he indicated how “solutions need to be deployed through a good policy framework which can create the right incentives, while facilitating the deployment of new technologies on islands through the right regulatory environment.” On the other hand “it is useless having important objectives if these are not properly financed.”
