What is expected to be the largest gathering of the European Regional Meeting of Grant Thornton is scheduled to take place in Malta late in May. Senior partners of the global accounting organization will meet for two days to review the company’s performance in 2016 and to talk about strategy for the future.

Topics for discussion will include the effect of Brexit on cross-border business transactions and passporting; blockchain issues; and new emerging technologies. There will also be sessions on the future of family businesses, SMEs with an emphasis on succession planning and financing.

The meeting expects to host more than 90 senior partners from Grant Thornton’s European and CIS regions, with participation also from Ed Nusbaum, GT Global CEO, and Francesca Lagerberg, GT Leader for tax services.

The head of Malta, Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, Governor of the Central Bank of Malta Mario Vella, and GT Managing Partner Mark Bugeja will also be on hand.

“It is a great honor for Malta to be hosting such a prestigious event.” Bugeja said. “We appreciate the trust that Grant Thornton International has put in us and the value and potential that the firm sees in Malta, not only in terms of fielding the European Regional Meeting on the island, but also for reaffirming Malta as a European hub for advisory and financial services.”
