New term launched for the Europe Direct centre

Minister Carmelo Abela launched a new term for the Europe Direct centre, within the Agency for European Services, aimed to provide the public with all information on European Union initiatives and legislation, among others.

The Europe Direct centre, which gives information on services, rights and obligations, benefits and opportunities launched by the European Commission, will continue to be run by the European Services Agency for the coming four years.

Minister Abela said that Malta received various benefits during its 17 years of membership in the EU, including funds for big projects, such as roads, services, restoration, jobs and education, and workers’ training.

He added that this work needs a professional commitment for the setting up of the Europe Direct centre in Valletta, which will further work to improve the relationship of the European citizens with the European Commission through information campaigns and discussions, including on the social and broadcasting media.

The Europe Direct centre is among over 400 centres spread in European Union countries.
