The 2018 budget enhances government's credibility and produces a clear vision for the future, Labour MEP Miriam Dalli said on Friday.

Dalli, who was addressing a public dialogue at the Fortina Hotel in Sliema, said that the budget presented by the government last week was unique not only because no new taxes were introduced, but also because the Government had the occasion to lay out its vision for the future.

“Budget 2018 is clear evidence of a credible government with a vision for the future to generate wealth,” Dalli said. "It is this credibility in the government which allows people to have trust in the government’s visible future."

She insisted that trust in the government was beneficial for all citizens, as they can now better control their future.

“The trust that Maltese and Gozitans have is the key for further investments and for peace of mind that can ensure that citizens have a better quality of life for themselves and their children."

Dalli said that the surplus which some thought would be impossible was now being shared among all citizens.

“This budget has provided more money and incentives to families, whilst reaching out to society as a whole, including the elderly, pensioners, youths and workers,” she said.
