Maltese companies say they feel the heat of competition - 28/07/2014

Malta Today reports on a Eurobarometer survey which shows that Maltese companies are amongst those most likely to feel the pressure of competitors which suggests that Maltese businesses feel that they face greater competition than others. 39% of respondents say that they face ‘hundreds of competitors’ or ‘too many to count’ whilst only 29% of European counterparts thought likewise. On the other hand only 21% of Maltese companies said that they face few competitors, well below the European average of 34%. Companies in Austria, Greece and Finland are the most likely to say they face few competitors, compared to 19% in Malta.

Brussels: bus fare row over - 28/07/2014

The government confirmed that the European Commission has closed infringement proceedings against Malta over the issue of the differentiated tariff structure for bus transport in Malta. The tariffs discriminating between the maximum fares applicable to residents of Malta and the fares payable by non-resident were removed followed a decision by the government to introduce a single bus fare from January 6. The government welcomed the Commission’s decision to close the infringement proceedings and noted the increase in the use of public transport usage since the removal of the two-tier system.
