The Malta Sports Journalists Association (MSJA) congratulates Dr Clifton Grima on being appointed as the Minister for Education and Sport and thanks the government for taking into consideration the suggestions of the MSJA and various sports entities regarding the need for sport to be elevated to a Ministerial level. The MSJA feels that this decision will have the desired results, especially due to the fact that Dr. Grima was already responsible for this sector when he was serving as a Parliamentary Secretary.

The MSJA thanks Prime Minister, Dr Robert Abela, for listening and considering the requests which were being made in recent years from various sports entities. It is only obvious that the new and current needs of local Sport Associations and Federations are met with Sport being always pushed further up in the Government’s Agenda.

Finally, the MSJA augurs Dr Clifton Grima all the best for his commitment towards Education and Sport in our country.
