Leading legal practitioners in Malta, Dr Stephen Attard, Dr Anthony Cremona and Dr Andre Zerafa from GANADO Advocates were invited to participate at IFSP’s Annual Conference and Networking Reception 2017, that was organised on the 26th of January at The Xara Lodge, Rabat.

On an annual basis, the conference offers an effective platform for local financial services practitioners to come together and discuss the regulatory, political and technological challenges that the industry is facing and how these can be transformed into opportunities for the benefit of the industry at large. The Hon Prof Edward Scicluna, Minister for Finance, delivered the opening speech, and Dr Mario Demarco, Opposition Spokesman on Finance, delivered the closing remarks at this year’s event.

Dr Attard participated in a panel discussion which addressed the latest tax developments in connection with the BEPS project, ATAD, and CC(C)TB as well as their expected impact, challenges and opportunities for Malta. Dr Cremona sat on the panel that discussed the EU transparency package and Dr Zerafa chaired a discussion about capital markets and alternative sources of finance.
