BOV renews gold support with Malta Chamber
A three year agreement was signed between Bank of Valletta (BOV) and the Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry, renewing the bank’s Gold Partnership with the Malta Chamber. The agreement was signed by Charles Borg, CEO and Michael Galea, Chief Officer Operations and Multi-Channel Banking on behalf of Bank of Valletta and David G. Curmi and Anton Borg, President and Deputy President of the Malta Chamber.
The latest agreement will formalise co-operation between the Malta Chamber and Bank of Valletta until 2016. This extends formal co-operation between the two organizations to beyond a decade since the signing of the first agreement.
The two organisations will continue to work together on a number of initiatives, and will seek to focus on creating a platform that supports local SMEs. The services will be provided through a “BOV SME Advisory Office” within the Malta Chamber building.
In a brief address, Mr Curmi said that the Malta Chamber was proud to be supported by one of the main players in the island’s economy. “Bank of Valletta has offered tangible support to the Malta Chamber for several years and this support has gone beyond monetary contribution. The local business community has been the major beneficiary of this long history of support and this latest agreement will concentrate on SMEs and their valuable contribution to society.”
Speaking during the signing Mr Borg said “This agreement is another important milestone for the Bank, giving tangible evidence of its commitment to support and promote SMEs to achieve their full potential. Through this agreement, both parties will capitalise on their leading roles and expertise to assist SMEs. In addition we look forward to the possibility of collaborating on joint projects for the benefit of the business community.”
