Maurice Cauchi, President tal-Federation of Maltese Living Abroad (precedentement Federation of Maltese Abroad), kiteb artiklu li deher fis-Sunday Times tal-lum fejn spjega l-għanijiet ta’ din il-Federazzjoni. Dwar il-kwistjoni ta’ rappreżentanza u kif din tqajjment matul il-Konvenzjoni ta’ Marzu li għadda, Cauchi kellu dan xi jgħid:
The suggestion by the Minister for Foreign Affairs at the time was that a specific committee be set up, comprising members appointed by him from people living overseas as well as those in Malta. Such a suggestion has merit only if the committee in question is in a position to ensure that action is taken as required.
This is only one issue that the new federation will have to deal with, namely to ensure that what was promised in March will not take years to be achieved.
