Dear President and Members of the Committee of Institute of Financial Services (IFS) Malta, personally and on behalf of the Board of Directors of the Central Bank of Malta and of its Senior Management, I thank you for the opportunity to address this distinguished audience. 

Dear Minister. Ladies and gentlemen.

This annual event brings together key stakeholders in this country's economic development and growth, and in the development of the social, educational and cultural conditions without which economic development and growth are not possible. It is now an established tradition that the Governor of the Central Bank seizes the opportunity of the Annual Dinner of IFS Malta to make a number of factually grounded remarks about some matters in the remit of the Central Bank.
