Malta-India Women’s Chamber (WICCI Malta) joins The Malta Chamber

The Malta Chamber and the Women’s Malta Chamber of Commerce & Industry, an affiliate of WICCI India, agreed to co-operate actively to nurture a climate of economic diversification, development and cooperation between Malta and India, within a global network led by women.

We are excited to have the Malta India Women’s Chamber joining us as corporate members. We are eager to embark with this organisation on this journey towards promoting commercial exchanges for our members with such an important country. But it is not just that. We consider women in business to be a strongly developing entrepreneurial and leadership resource. Leveraging on women talent is becoming a key competitive advantage for progressive economies like ours. I believe that coupled with our respective organisational expertise, the prospects for Maltese business to engage in valuable cross continental projects is promising” said Perit David Xuereb.

During her intervention, Dame Jane Chircop remarked: “Today it is a milestone and we wrote history for our country. Two chambers with one goal. The empowerment of women in our country is long due and that is what we want to achieve.”

Participating virtually in the signing ceremony, Dr Harbeen Arora, Founder and President of Women’s Indian Chamber of Commerce, and Industry (WICCI) congratulated the Malta Chamber for its exceptional work towards advocating a truly inclusive economy where women are given the merited importance, hence the symbolic ceremony taking place under its auspices.
