On Wednesday, 30th November 2022, the Hon. Clayton Bartolo, Minister for Tourism of the Republic of Malta, inaugurated the new Malta Tourism Authority Office in Warsaw. For this occasion, Minister Bartolo was joined by H.E. Andrzej Gus-Mostowy, Secretary of State at the Ministry of Sports and Tourism of the Republic of Poland.

This Office will complement the Malta Tourism Authority’s existing overseas network currently in London, Paris, Rome, New York and Berlin. The Warsaw Office is MTA’s first regional office and first in Eastern Europe.

The establishment of a Warsaw Office is an opportunity for the Maltese Government to seek new markets and attract tourism, which is within the context of the Malta Tourism Authority’s strategy of diversification in tourism markets all year round.

It was announced during the inauguration that 2022 will be a record year for tourism from Poland, expecting as many as 135,000 tourists, thus surpassing the 2019 record level of 104,228 by almost 30%. The Malta Tourism Authority is even envisaging 2023 to be a better year than 2022.

The Embassy of Malta in Warsaw welcomes this development as a contribution to strengthening further bilateral relations between Malta and Poland. The Embassy will continue working on this sector. The Malta Embassy in Warsaw will constantly remain assisting the new Warsaw Office as previously done.

Minister Bartolo was accompanied by Ambassador Marisa Farrugia, MTA’s Chairman Dr Gavin Gulia, MTA’s CEO Mr Carlo Micallef and MTA’s Regional Director based in Warsaw Mr John Mary Attard, amongst other people.
