Maltese official to visit Jersey

The High Commissioner of Malta is to visit Jersey as part of an initiative to strengthen economic, political and cultural links between the two islands.

His Excellency Joseph Zammit Tabona is to meet States officials to discuss interests such as gaming and EU issues.

He is also set to talk to a number of financial institutions while in Jersey.

In January the islands signed a double taxation agreement to protect firms and people from being taxed twice if their income is taxable in two states.

Mr Tabona is due to spend two days in Jersey at the start of September and during his time in the island he and his wife, who will both be staying at Government House, will be guests at a dinner hosted by the Bailiff.

Chief Minister Senator Terry Le Sueur said: "Having signed a Double Taxation Agreement (DTA) with Malta in January, Jersey is glad to welcome the High Commissioner to continue to build relations with Malta.

"Both islands will use this occasion to learn from each other and to explore the economic opportunities that may exist."
