Schemes for the big and the small fish?

The Malta Enterprise in collaboration with the Ministry for Gozo and the Gozo Business Chamber organised an information seminar in Gozo. This seminar primarily aimed to promote Gozo for industry especially that connected with the manufacturing and services sectors. It was also intentioned to increase awareness, amongst Gozitan industrialists and employers, on the various incentive schemes for industry administered by Malta Enterprise.

It is reported that the Minister for Gozo stressed the importance for Gozitan businessmen and entrepreneurs to become familiar with the many schemes launched by Government through Malta Enterprise in order to promote and facilitate industry.

The professional support and assistance given by Malta Enterprise is considered as an important added value to the various fiscal and non fiscal incentives one may benefit from these schemes. Minister Debono also remarked that some of these schemes would be co-funded through EU funds. Gozo will be benefiting through at least 10% of EU funds allocated to Malta for budgetary period 2008-2013.

I always wondered who those are really benefiting from such schemes. Is it a big or a small fish? I sometimes ask myself whether there is any exclusivity for that individual/s. Do I need a favour from somebody if I want to know more?
