A Sustainable Community in a Changed Economy
In 2010 Zejtun Local Council was amongst one of the few Local Councils chosen by the Department of Local Government to commission a report on the sustainability of the locality and how this changed over time. To commission this study the Zejtun Local Council engaged a number of professionals who with their expertise in their respective fields a final report was prepared and presented during a seminar held on Saturday 5th May at SouthPort venue in Marsaxlokk. Amongst others, this report focuses on the closure of the Malta Shipyards and its impact on the Zejtun Community, the agricultural and farming industry and the challenges it faces as well as the social and economic situation of the Zejtun community. Home Affairs and Local Government Minister Dr. C. Mifsud Bonnici and shadow Minister Dr. S. Buontempo were also present for this Seminar.
