MDA on foreign workers
The Malta Developers Association notes that there appears to be a controversy on the issue of the number of foreign workers currently working in Malta.
MDA feels that the economic rhythm that the country has now picked up would not have been possible without these foreign workers, who are making NI contributions as well as paying direct taxation and indirect taxation through their consumption in Malta.
As a result, Malta is now economically abreast with the leading EU member states and therefore these workers should be welcomed as long as they respect all our laws, including those regulating employment.
Any measures taken to curb the influx of foreign workers would harm the economy in the sense that the momentum achieved would be stalled.
