Rotary Club Malta, now in its 47th year in Malta as a service club, was protagonist in organizing the Rotary Inter-Country Committee meeting in Malta, for Rotarians from Switzerland, Italy, and Liechtenstein and Malta, was held between the 25 and 28 September at the Corinthia St Julians hotel

The program prepared for this cultural and fellowship event drew a gathering of over a hundred Rotarians. Local Rotarian hospitality was at its best as the whole group was entertained to 12 individual dinner parties at the homes of club members and was the highlight of the weekend.

Apart from visiting a number of Malta’s historical sites, conference, guests were addressed on the Saturday morning by eminent speakers from Italy and Malta.  Prof. Dott. Emilio Cottini, author of 182 publications and Dean of the faculty of Medicine at the University of Catania, as well as a long standing Rotarian, delved into important issues related to reciprocal understanding between nations. Dr. Karsten Xuereb, executive director for the Valletta 2018 Foundation, and responsible for preparing Valletta as European Capital of Culture 2018, presented a brilliant run up to this important event in Malta’s calendar, themed "Valletta 2018, transforming a dream into reality".  

Following the conference the contingent sailed to the Grand Harbour before berthing at the Birgu marina followed by lunch at the Maritime Museum. A surprise ‘historical enactment’ awaited them in the main square of Birgu before their return to the hotel.

The InterContinental Hotel hosted all 153 Rotarians to a sumptuous farewell gala dinner in a splendid garden setting where they were entertained by musicians brought over from Sicily for the occasion.

Next year’s ICC meeting will be held in Liechtenstein.
