A group of supporters from the Malta Youth in Agriculture Foundation today had the opportunity to meet Her Excellency Mrs. Marie Louise Coleiro Preca at San Anton Palace. The scope of the meeting was to discuss the challenges and opportunities of young farmers in Malta.
The President stressed the fact that young people are the future of society and that an initiative such as MaYA is "very good news". The multifunctional role of agriculture has been outlined by Her Excellency in the light of ever changing society needs.
Ms. Jeanette Borg, Founder of the Foundation, expressed gratitude towards such encouraging feedback, while commenting that supporters within MaYA are a new breed of Maltese growers and livestock breeders, focusing on collaboration and win-win situations.
During the meeting, the supporters conversed with the cheerful President in spite her very busy schedule.
