MBA WELCOMES DELEGATIONS FROM THE EUROPEAN BANKING FEDERATION AND THE LUXEMBOURG BANKING ASSOCIATION
Following the recent visits to Malta by delegations from the German Banking Association and the British Bankers' Association, the Malta Bankers' Association (MBA) held further high-level meetings with visiting delegations from the European Banking Federation as well as the Luxembourg Banking Association. These visits were aimed primarily at reviewing the priorities of the forthcoming Maltese EU Presidency, and also served as an opportunity to discuss and exchange views on various regulatory and supervisory issues of topical interest relating to financial services.
The European Banking Federation unites 32 national banking associations in Europe, including the MBA, that together represent some 4,500 banks employing over two million people. The Federation will be holding its Executives Committee and Board meetings in Malta on the 4th and 5th May 2017. Mr James Bonello, Secretary General of the MBA, welcomed this opportunity and said: "We are delighted to be hosting these prestigious events in Malta next year, and to be working closely on banking and financial services issues with our European counterparts throughout Malta's EU Presidency".
