Dr Muscat told a packed audience of VIPs: ‘Malta’s commitment to the values of the Commonwealth Business Forum remains unwavering.

‘I am delighted to announce that next year, Malta will host the first Commonwealth’s Foreign Direct Investment Conference.

‘All investment promotion agencies, SMEs and international corporations will be invited to Malta to continue to consolidate on the work that we aim to achieve this week.

‘It will be an excellent opportunity to continue to provide the necessary thrust for further growth and prosperity in the Commonwealth.’

As well as Dr Muscat, British Prime Minister Theresa May and London Mayor Sadiq Khan also addressed the business forum at the Guildhall.
