The two Nationalist Party leadership contenders, Dr Adrian Delia and Dr Chris Said, held separate meetings with the Malta Developers Association Council. The meetings, held at the request of the two candidates, turned out to be two long, fruitful discussions.
Both Dr Delia and Dr Said acknowledged the good work of the MDA and its highly valid contribution to the country.
Dr Delia, who said he intends to work on a long-term plan up to 2050, agreed with MDA President Sandro Chetcuti that the construction industry is one of the most important economic sectors of our country. He stressed the need to continue to promote investment in construction and promised that, if elected PN leader, he would co-operate with MDA as much as possible.
Dr Said praised MDA for its work. He saw it being born and admires what it has achieved. It has become one of the biggest, if not the biggest local associations, that is making a valid contribution to the country and he noted that MDA could always see the big picture. Considering the proposals MDA submitted to the current administration, he could appreciate the tangible success achieved by developers, contractors and those involved in building services.
Mr Chetcuti promised both leaders that, in the interests of the building industry, MDA would co-operate with anyone chosen to become the Leader of the Opposition.
