  • Prime Minister Joseph Muscat insisted on having a sustainable economy that allows for the improved distribution of wealth year on year, whilst also maintaining that a change in culture must occur with regards to the people’s behaviour towards environmental issues.
  • The Prime Minister also noted that not only are families receiving money, but they were also receiving something of which the value cannot be calculated monetarily – the ability to spend more time together through the returning of a third day of leave.
  • The environment was also mentioned, with various policies being brought up during his speech such as the announcing of the cut-off date for the importation of non-electric cars, measures pertaining to the use of single-use plastic, and the bottle recycling measure.
