Digital Champion Malta: priorities and challenges

"My first priority is the Introduction of specific digital rights within our own Constitution in order to recognise the importance of internet", explained Mr Ghio. He believes the Internet is an essential tool, "not only for our human rights, but it is an enabler, a tool of empowerment for our citizens and enterprises".
As for the challenges that Malta is facing in the sector, Antonio Ghio said: "Firstly, we need political consensus for the legislative changes.  Then it is crucial to educate the people and to recognise the potential of internet for a small state like Malta".
