The 14th Meeting of Malta's honorary consuls and consuls general was held on Wednesday in Munich and was hosted by Bernhard Müller-Menrad, hon. consul in the Bavarian capital. Mr Müller-Menrad is also the owner and chief executive officer of Malta-based spectacles producer, Menrad Ltd.

Apart from the participation of the eight honorary consuls and consuls general, the full-day meeting was attended by the Regional Manager of Air Malta for Central Europe, the director, Malta Tourism Authority, in Frankfurt, a representative of Malta Enterprise and Henry J. Borg, president of the German-Maltese Chamber of Commerce.

In the course of the meeting these gentlemen made interesting presentations to the consuls on their working activities. Manuel Mifsud, Counsellor and Consular Officer, briefed the consuls on the visa procedures following Malta's entry into the European Union.

The meeting was chaired by William Spiteri, Malta's Ambassador in Berlin.

Ambassador Spiteri briefed the consuls on Maltese-German relations, Malta's economic performance and political situation, the EU, the Mediterranean and other matters of interest to them. The agenda, however, focused on consular activities, promotional events and on discussing the work-plans for the year.
