|Engineers’ role in the future of business development|
"Engineering is needed today more than ever, because its practical approach to problem solving is what turns plans into a reality," said Ing. Saviour Baldacchino, President of the Chamber of Engineers during the recently held Annual General Meeting. “It is innovative and creative and able to turn the results of research into practical products and services.”
The President pointed out that the changing structure of the economy has led many to think that the future of a sustainable economy is only in services, with manufacturing and thus engineering perceived as out-dated. “This is not the case, and this is what we aim to instill in the public mind through our endeavours,” he explained. “Engineers have an important role to play in the business community, as they are the key players when it comes to innovation and research and development. These factors must be implemented within every business’ operations in order to develop further.”
The Annual General Meeting was followed by the elections of the Executive Council, where Ing. Baldacchino was re-elected President, Ing. Ray Vassallo, Vice President, Ing. Ray Muscat, General Secretary, Ing. Godfrey Muscat, Treasurer and Ing. Paul Refalo, Public Relations Officer. Mr. Daniel Micallef was elected Activities Secretary, Ing. Johan Psaila, Secretary for International Affairs, Ing. Matthew Galea, Membership Secretary, and Student Representative, Mr. Russell Farrugia.
