As the new crisis in the East seems to replace pandemic in the European agenda, states are still struggling to find economic resources needed to preserve the welfare and foster the domestic economies. The common understanding is that the Next Generation EU / Recovery Plan projects won’t suffice, and the long-term sustainability of the growth might be granted only via robust (and bold) fiscal policy decisions. Tax competitiveness appears to be once again (and once) more the remedy, yet EU law regulates the phenomenon and poses constraints and conditionalities.

Malta and Italy, so close to each other, seem to have adopted different legal strategies in this respect.

The purpose of this two days event, part of the PhD Programme in European Law and National Legal systems (University of Ferrara) and of the courses in tax law is to investigate the legal measures Malta has enacted to stimulate the growth.

Day 1: the Maltese developments in Trust law and the Malta tax refund for Italian  Shareholders.
