"“The Gozitan tourism product distinguishes itself by fostering aspects of Gozitan culture, be it culinary, social or artistic,” MEP Therese Comodini Cachia said.
During her meeting with GTA chairman Paul Scicluna and CEO Joe Muscat, the MEP discussed avenues of cooperation for further promoting the distinctive features of the island - mainly gastronomy, opera tourism, religious tourism, carnival and diving." The features of the Island have nothing to do with gastronomy, opera, religion, and the rest.
It is the people who inhabit the land whom over many years of interaction, a relationship is built between them and the land, which gives that distinctivness.
It is this distinctivness that we must protect from any form of alien that tries to intrude and interfere with this delicate magical
relation between the land and its inhabitants. It is the Maltese distinctivness as a unique people that must be protected at all costs.
