BOV supports International Medical Conference hosted by MAM
Tuesday, 19 October, 2004
Bank of Valletta is sponsoring an international conference of the Permanent Working Group of European Junior Doctors. The conference, being hosted by the Medical Association of Malta (MAM), is being held at the Radisson Hotel on the 21st and 22nd October 2004.
The Bank's sponsorship was presented by Julian Holland, Manager, Business Development to Dr. Martin Balzan, General Secretary of MAM.
The Permanent Working Group of European Junior Doctors (PWG) was formally created in Bad-Nauheim, Germany, in May 1976. Since then, the PWG has become the European medical organisation with the most comprehensive national membership, representing the junior doctors of 23 European countries. The PWG's initial objectives include safeguarding the interests of the junior doctors in Europe, improving relations between its member organisations and narrowing the gap between the junior doctors of the European Union . The past quarter of a century, the PWG has actively intervened in defence of the medical profession in Europe with the purpose of contributing to the development of junior doctors' work and education and has had an important role as a background group for the organisations of junior doctors in countries preparing to join the European Union.
Presenting the sponsorship Mr. Holland said ?As the official banker of the Medical Association of Malta, BOV is delighted to support this international conference in Malta. We are pleased to see that the relationship between the Bank and the MAM is continuing to strengthen and develop. The successful organization of such a high level international conference will require extensive resources and BOV is pleased to support MAM in its efforts to successfully organize this meeting.
Thanking Bank of Valletta for its continuous support, Dr Martin Balzan, General Secretary of the MAM said that this is the second time that Malta is hosting a meeting of the Permanent Working Group of European Junior Doctors . He said the partnership with BOV is bearing fruit, and that he was looking forward to a successful meeting in Malta.
Also present were Dr Mark Camilleri, Dr Marius Grima and Dr Lisa Pullicino from the organizing committee.
