1.        Background

The theme chosen for the Pre-Budget Document 2020 is ‘Sustaining Inclusive Growth’.

For six consecutive years, Malta experienced unprecedented economic growth rate which resulted in sustaining its position amongst the best economic performers in the European Union.

In the coming years, the Government will continue to address the new challenges brought about by the rapid economic expansion so to ensure that economic growth is sustained.  The strengthening of the public institutions including the justice system, as well as sustaining the investment in the health and education sectors, will remain a priority.  The upgrading of the physical and digital infrastructure will continue to feature in future budgets as well.


In order to understand more clearly such rationale, kindly access the Pre-Budget document (available here​).  As part of the Pre-Budget 2020 Consultation process, the Government intended to invite you to submit your feedback, thoughts, observations and suggestions for the forthcoming Budget.
