What is Malta’s new Digital Economy ‘Think Tank’?

Posted on 15 Jul 2020

On 22 June 2020, the Parliamentary Secretary for Digital Economy, Clayton Bartolo, publicly announced the launch of Malta’s first Digital Economy ‘Think Tank’.

The Think Tank is responsible for generating innovative ideas and guidelines on how Malta can diversify and stimulate its economic portfolio by leveraging and adopting digital technologies, such as Blockchain, AI, Quantum, crypto and big data. It consists of 10 professionals, with varied backgrounds (Economics, Law, Finance and Quantum), whose expertise complement each other so as to ensure that the purpose for which the Think Tank was set up will be fulfilled.

We are proud that Dr. Justine Scerri Herrera, based in our Malta office, is a member of this prestigious taskforce. Dr. Justine’s expertise includes advising on the legal aspects of matters relating to Fintech, Blockchain & Virtual Assets, and Investments.
