Ministry for Competitiveness and Communications (various projects)
Ministeru tal-Kompetittivita’ u Komunikazzjoni

Background & policy context: 

The Ministry for Competitiveness and Communications is responsible for the following transport related authorities in Malta:
-  Civil Aviation
-  Malta Maritime Authority.

The Ministry’s responsibilities were assigned to "Ministry for Infrastructure Transport and Communications"(MITC).

Strategic Objectives: 


Programme organisation: 

Bearing in mind the size of the country, there are limited research activities in transport, besides the participation in the 6th Framework Programme and other EU funded programmes such as COST and CORDIS. Therefore, research in transport is mostly integrated in planning studies and surveys rather than under a formal research programme. Related work is much focused on the contribution of the MCC for the Structure Plan Review which is currently being worked out. Both the Malta Maritime Authority and the Department of Civil Aviation, which both report to the Ministry, are specifically involved, together with others, in elaborating the Plan Review.

The Ministry can be involved in the new RTDI programme of the MCST (see separate programme profile)  if any project applications fall under its competence.
