The Malta Tourism Authority (MTA) has a diverse role, but one which in essence is all about creating and fostering relationships. The MTA is the tourism industry’s regulator and motivator, its business partner, the country’s brand promoter, and is here to form, maintain and manage meaningful partnerships with all tourism stakeholders.
Primarily, this means talking to visitors to the Islands, but also to work closely alongside the private sector partners. Importantly, the MTA is also here to help strengthen the industry’s human resources, ensure the highest standards and quality of the Islands’ tourism product, and foster relations with local and international media.
The ADRC Trust has been established by the Chalmers family in memory of their son and brother Alistair David Robert Chalmers, who died in 2012, aged just 31. Alistair wrote in both poetry and prose, and his book The Dust on the Path was published in 2011. He was also an accomplished musician, photographer and artist. An exhibition of his photography and works of art was staged in 2013.
The ADRC Trust will seek to support those causes that were important to Alistair Chalmers – encouraging talent in the young, Hispanic studies, the visual and performing arts, and the heritage and environment of Malta.
