Annual Integration conference

December 15, 2018

 

The first Annual Integration Conference was held on the 14th December  2018 in Corinthia Hotel,  under the supervision of Minister Helena Dalli.

 It is the culmination of a year of meetings taking place into the  Forum of Integration Affairs, that  was set up early this year in order to  create a channel of communication between the government and  the members of the communities living in Malta.

 

Among the achievements of the Integration Policy put in place  are:

The integration program called "I belong", open for registration to all foreigners living in Malta.

The SRA, Specific Residence Authorisation,  a residence permit open to migrants who can prove a regular residency, and at least 9 months of employment activity  by year in Malta for the past 5 years. Failed asylum seekers meeting  those requirements  will also be regularized. 

 

A project called TTT( Turn The Table), proposed by the government and handed over to be managed by the migrants communities, in order for them to create and design a policy that will then be discussed with the authorities for approval.

 

Attending the conference was the Minister Helena Dalli, who appointed the members of the Forum at the beginning of the year.

The "I belong" program was explained in more detail to the participants.

 

Some relevant interventions  during the Q&A sessions .

Dr Falzon: "The integration will remain a colourful thing  if it is limited at inviting migrants at the local fiesta. They should be given access to the vote and to citizenship, the only way to create a real sense of belonging."

 

Francois Mifsud: "It is unacceptable that migrants carry all their money in their pocket because they are denied the right to open a bank account"
