The European Commission Representation in Malta with the collaboration of the European embassies in Malta and Rome is organising another edition of the European Film Festival. The Festival will be launched on Friday the 14th November 2014 and between the 15th and the 30th November a different film will be screened every evening at Europe House, St Paul Street, Valletta. This 12th Edition of the European Film Festival is being held in celebration of the 10th anniversary of Malta's EU membership.
The European Commission's autumn forecast projects weak economic growth for the rest of this year in both the EU and the euro area. Real GDP growth is expected to reach 1.3% in the EU and 0.8% in the euro area for 2014 as a whole. Growth is expected to rise slowly in the course of 2015, to 1.5% and 1.1% respectively, on the back of improving foreign and domestic demand. An acceleration of economic activity to 2.0% and 1.7% respectively in 2016 is expected to be driven by the strengthening of the financial sector (following the comprehensive assessment by the European Central Bank and further progress towards the Banking Union), as well as recent structural reforms starting to bear fruit.
