1st April 2020

The Government of Malta has rolled out a number of financial packages over the past weeks to mitigate against the economic and social impact of COVID-19. This Fenech & Fenech Advocates publication consolidates all financial, employment and social support measures introduced for Malta. Some measures have only been announced by a Government public press call, and therefore the details on eligibility and exclusions are yet to be published. Some of the measures apply limitedly to certain industries that are most hard hit by COVID-19.
