Support for the Treaty for the Avoidance of Double Taxation between the USA and Malta
Dear Senator Kerry,
The American Chamber of Commerce in Malta writes to inform you of our active support in favour of the ratification of the Treaty for the Avoidance of Double Taxation between the United States of America and Malta.
The American Chamber of Commerce in Malta represents companies and individuals having US- investment and US-business interests in Malta.
In your capacity as member of the US Senate’s Foreign Affairs Committee, we strongly invite you to favourably consider supporting the ratification of said Treaty, presently under review within your Committee.
Over the decades, Malta and the USA have enjoyed a strong political and business relationship. However, we firmly believe that the ratification of the Treaty by Senate will strengthen even further this relationship and open new opportunities of bilateral commercial cooperation between our respective countries, to the benefit of all.
On behalf of all members of the American Chamber of Commerce in Malta who would have liked to write to you directly, we look forward to the timely ratification of the Treaty.
We thank you in advance for your attention and cooperation and with optimism look forward to implementing the ideals set forth in the Treaty which will bear positive economic fruits once ratified and implemented.
Dr Anton Tabone
President of the American Chamber of Commerce, Malta
