Forum Unions welcome budget 2014
The Forum Unions Maltin noted the continuation of implementation of beneficial measures taking on and developing from previous budgets.
“Forum is also pleased to note that some of its important proposals submitted to the MCESD were included during the budget speech. However, the Forum still has to evaluate the impact of tax increases mentioned in the budget speech and their effect on our members.”
The Forum welcomed proposals for the creation of jobs and the reduction of the budget deficit since this augurs well for Malta not to be penalized by the EU. On the other hand, Forum still has its reservations on the proposals presented in the budget regarding the Health Sector.
“Forum hopes that Budget 2014 presented a true and fair view of the prevalent state of affairs and that in the forthcoming year there will be no other indirect or direct tax increases implemented other than those mentioned in the budget. “
