Mr Cassar’s address was made during the section dedicated to Ekonomija u ambjent: nahsdu li nizirghu? (Economy and environment: do we reap what we sow?), where he stated that sustainable economic development requires planning, vision, and courage, is forward-looking and is built on a sense of responsibility towards future generations.
