Malta Tourism Minister Konrad Mizzi has highlighted that the Paceville Area accommodates 6,00,000 unique visitors in a year. The minister stated that Paceville accounts to 21 percent of all guest nights in Malta and is visited by 25 percent of the tourists.
Noting the potential of Paceville as an important tourist destination, the Ministry of Tourism in association with Malta Hotels and Restaurants Association (MHRA) and the Mediterranean Tourism Foundation also announced a €10 million embellishment programme for the development of the area.
As per the Ministry, the programme is being launched to transform Paceville into an ‘upmarket tourist destination’ and to make it ‘one of the best in the Mediterranean’. The announcement was made by Konrad Mizzi during his meeting with Paceville stakeholders.
As per a report in Lovin Malta, the minister said that the budget was allocated to strengthen the infrastructure of Paceville Area and to support the “ever-growing destination and addressing the current challenges.”
“The design concept will be contemplated over the next three months and it will look at new attractions, amenities, CCTV installations, and embellishment of public spaces,” Lovin Malta quoted a Maltese government spokesperson as saying.
The Ministry of Tourism explained that a process of information mapping and engagement consultation will be implemented after which a high-level design will be drafted. Following this, the implementation work for embellishment programme will start.
A large part of Malta’s revenues are generated through the tourism sector and the current government has implemented a number of measures to improve the whole tourism infrastructure in the country.
