The Authority for Competition and Consumer Affairs, MCCAA, has approved 20 ventilators which the Malta-China Friendship Society brought over at no charge from China.
The Society’s President, former Minister Reno Calleja, stated that the Authority carefully checks out every product coming from China and from non-EU countries, in order to ensure the products conform to EU established levels.
These ventilators are expected to arrive in Malta on the first aircraft coming from China.
On Sunday the MCCAA approved 40,000 masks which the Malta-China Friendship Society brought over from China and donated to the Health Ministry.
Mr Calleja thanked Malta’s Ambassador to China, Mr John Aquilina, who he said had been instrumental in facilitating these donations. Mr Calleja also thanked the Malta-China Friendship Society, the Chinese Embassy in Malta and the Health and Foreign Affairs Ministries.
