...in the simulator for longer times, for three or four days, but, of course, we never flew - that's going to be the first time,'' said Borschberg. "You need an airplane which is reliable - you cannot do maintenance in-flight."
Tourism Minister Edward Zammit Lewis thanked all involved in organising the event, which attracts a significant number of tourists to Malta. "The government highly supports the airshow because it offers tourists a different kind of product" he said
"Twenty years after its adoption, the Code of Conduct has gained, once again, an “unwanted” topicality during the current crisis in Ukraine. In the past years the emphasis was laid on intra-State aspects, such as the democratic control of armed and security forces, the implementation of international humanitarian law, the law of armed conflict and the safeguarding of rights and duties of armed forces personnel. The last months have now shown a growing need to re-focus on inter-State aspects, such as the right of participating States to freely choose their own security arrangements, the respect for each other's sovereign equality and individuality, and the organization of mutual security relations among participating States upon a co-operative approach.” "
"If the initiative had been accepted, without doubt that would have led to job cuts, particularly in remote and structurally weaker regions" Swiss Economy Minister Johann Schneider-Ammann said at a news conference. "The best remedy against poverty is work."
