The Commerce Department, together with the Malta Crafts Foundation, is considering whether to participate once again in this year’s edition of the crafts fair, “L’Artigiano in Fiera” which is scheduled to be held in Milan, Italy between Saturday, 5th December and Sunday, 13th December, 2020. Obviously, both the organisation of the fair itself as well as Malta’s participation in the fair will depend on the developments resulting from Covid-19 in the coming weeks and months. At this point in time, it is the intention of the Italian organisers to go ahead with the fair.
