Overview:

This session will be an interactive session on the current state of play of the Maltese pension system.  The presentation will address a number of questions currently being asked  such as: What is the sustainability of the local pension system in the long term?  What is a Pillar II and a Pillar III pension?  Are these pensions voluntary or obligatory and how do they operate in other countries?  Government has recently issued a tax incentive to encourage people to consider a voluntary pension under Pillar III, the session will delve into how such a tax rebate works?  And finally the session will explore the question: What is the right amount of money I should be putting aside to ensure that I can sustain my current standard of living when I decide to retire?

The Chamber feels this activity is relevant to both young and established engineers to plan their financial future in a sustainable manner.

We look forward to your participation at this event.

Chamber of Engineers Annual Conference on Intelligent Buildings

The Chamber of Engineers held its 24th Annual Engineering Conference on 5th May 2016 at the Radisson BLU Golden Sands. The conference entitled “Intelligent Buildings” focused on a variety of aspects related to buildings.

In his opening address Chamber President, Ing. Norman Zammit referred to the introduction of the first personal computers and mobile telephony, highlighting how technology evolved over the last 30 years, making it possible for this technology to be used in buildings to render them intelligent. From basic Building Management systems, to an evolution of integrated systems, where these systems can feature security, access control, CCTV and fire detection.

Ing. Zammit pointed out that health and safety requirements in this sector need to be reviewed to reassess the possible need for certification of these innovative engineering systems.

Hon. Joe Mizzi, Minister for Transport and the Infrastructure, also attending the conference, referred to the introduction of basic building management systems, which eventually gave birth to a new era of intelligent buildings. “The most important contribution of these types of buildings is not just the comfort provided to the users but more importantly the contribution towards the sustainability of our environment. Considering that the principle of sustainability can be applied to a number of buildings in the same area and the other concepts of sustainability are applied, then the result would be a smart city,” he said.
