Both countries’ gaming watchdogs have joined forces to create a better framework to enhance their “public policy objectives.”
Malta.- Gaming regulators from Malta and Sweden have decided to join forces in order to work together in creating a framework to enhance the countries’ “public policy objectives and mutually common values.” The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) and the Spelinspektionen signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to cooperate and share information on gaming-related matters.
“Many of the companies that have received a Swedish licence also have technical equipment and a licence in Malta. By opening the communication channels between the authorities we become stronger in our supervisory activities. This is the beginning of a broad and long-term cooperation, and our plan is to initiate corresponding collaborations with more gambling authorities in Europe,” Director General of the Spelinkspektionen, Camilla Rosenberg, stated.
MGA CEO Heathcliff Farrugia added: “The MGA is always actively seeking to foster relationships with fellow authorities and other international regulatory bodies as we firmly believe that such relationships are key to reaching our objectives, especially in the area of remote gaming which is fundamentally cross-border in nature. This MoU, signed with the Swedish Gambling Authority, is an important step towards achieving both our respective regulatory goals in vital areas of mutual interest, especially since the MGA and the Swedish Gambling Authority share a significant number of operators licensed by both regulators. We are eager to start this mutually beneficial journey with our Swedish counterpart.”
