Mr Cuschieri added that the MGA is aiming at more efficiency in the way it functions as a regulator, in order to provide a first class service to operators.

The Parliamentary Secretary added that this is part of a renewal and jurisdiction towards strengthening of the local gaming sector, enabling operators to be provided with a better service in order to encourage them towards further investment in Malta.
