Leading academics, entrepreneurs, artists and politicians come together on Friday to discuss Malta's future during a day-long conference focused on the state of the nation.

Hosted by the office of President George Vella, the event will see clusters of four speakers discuss key topics in hour-long conversations steered by moderators. 

The event will culminate with four speeches from strategic communications consultant Lou Bondi, Prime Minister Robert Abela, Opposition leader Bernard Grech and a closing speech by President Vella. That part of the programme will begin at 4.30pm.

Friday's event follows a conference on national unity which the president organised in February.
