Mr Speaker had an exchange of views with INIA’s Director Dr. Marvin Formosa, on the ageing situation in Malta focusing on this year’s theme of “Taking a Stand against Ageism”. Hon. Farrugia said that in Malta’s fast-ageing society, older persons will increasingly be called to play a crucial role in society, both through voluntary work and through their participation in the paid labour force. He added that, from the parliamentary debates relating to ageing which he had chaired, he can confirm that there is a strong awareness in Malta about the need to strengthen the inclusion of older persons and to promote active ageing, and that a lot was already being done in this respect.
