Daphne Caruana Galizia's murder has threatened Malta's safety and security, which are important considerations for investment decisions, Adrian Delia told the Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry.

The Nationalist Party leader said the Opposition wanted to ensure that the country's institutions functioned well and the rule of law prevailed.

Delia was speaking during a courtesy call at the Chamber in Valletta where he was accompanied by MPs Carm Mifsud Bonnici and PN deputy leadership candidates Robert Arrigo and Edwin Vassallo.

"Malta needs to work together to strengthen investment by ensuring that we regain security, safety and political stability," he said.

Chamber president Frank Farrugia condemned last week’s murder and said it was in everyone’s best interest to solve the murder and limit the damage it might have on future investment and job creation opportunities in Malta.

Turning to the business environment, Farrugia called on all stakeholders to understand the importance of being competitive.

He said the Chamber’s economic vision 2014-2020 presented a proactive business agenda to the government and insisted this agenda was still valid since it focused on making Malta a global hub for business and investment.
