Malta remains opposed to the Financial Transactions Tax

At a European Union meeting for Finance Ministers held in Luxembourg on the 9th October, eleven eurozone countries agreed to proceed with the introduction of the Financial Transactions Tax, with the exceptions of Malta, Cyprus, Finland, Iceland, Luxembourg and The Netherlands, along with the objections of non-eurozone members The United Kingdom and Sweden.

Lawrence Gonzi, Prime Minister of Malta, stated that the island will resist the introduction and imposition of the tax in its current proposed form across the eurozone due to its negative effect on Malta's competitive advantage with regards to taxation. Not withstanding, Malta will not oppose other EU member states opting to move forward with this initiative.

However, it will maintain its opposition to the Financial Transactions Tax unless measures are introduced and taken to protect Malta's competitive financial sector.
