EDITORIAL

A new dawn
European Union integration opens up a new horizon for entrepreneurial Maltese. It serves to attract investment whilst also offering numerous new standards hitherto unknown to the average Maltese.


OPINION

Into the EU copse
That is how last year I weighed the pros and cons when interviewed in ‘Countdown’ for this newspaper.

Europeans the Maltese way
Parliament Up till 30 April, Pliament was the institution that passed Maltese legislation. Now our laws can emanate directly from Brussels and these are regulations which do not pass through Parliament but automatically become part of our laws.

Gonzi for MEP
In Malta anything can happen: the Socialist party can win an election by opposing VAT and taking income tax evaders by the short and curlies; the world’s most Catholic Christian Democrats can oppose divorce but propose legislation on cohabitation. The Prime Minister has made himself president and the ex-President is still undecided whether to return to the hustings.

MaltaToday - Malta’s fastest growing newspaper
Readership of MaltaToday grew by a staggering 152 percent in under twelve months. This is the conclusion of a survey carried out by ‘Informa’ consultants. The survey confirms that MaltaToday is the fastest growing newspaper on the island with 4.3 percent of the newspaper market share compared to the 6.4 percent of it’s main rival, The Malta Independent on Sunday.
MaltaToday stood at 1.7 percent a year ago. The survey was carried out after the elections. MaltaToday’s increased readership is reflected in this newspaper’s sales records which have shot up during the last year. The Malta Independent on Sunday dropped by 6 percent during the same period.
