The countries of Malta and Israel held a joint tourism promotion event last week. The one-day conference was hosted by the two prime ministers of both nations, Joseph Muscat and Benjamin Netanyahu respectively.
The “Israel Tourism Rules” is a joint tourism promotion event hosted by Malta and Israel. The countries are hoping to increase tourism in their respective countries.
In order to promote tourism to the Mediterranean area, the Malta Tourism Authority and the Israel Ministry of Tourism staged a combined marketing event in New York City.
The event, which took place in New York’s Park East Synagogue, was co-hosted by Keith Azzopardi, Malta’s Ambassador to the United States in Washington, and Vanessa Frazier, Malta’s representative to the United Nations in New York.

What’s Hot Right Now
In his comments, Dale said that the two places had a lot in common.
“They share the Mediterranean Sea, comparable cuisines, variety, and, of course, they are rich in history, archaeology, and religious pilgrimages,” Dale said. “Their cultures are both a reflection of the diverse individuals that make up their population.” Despite their similarities, they each have their own distinct background and taste, making this a one-of-a-kind two-destination experience.”
Direct flights between the two countries have now resumed, uniting them in a quick two-and-a-half-hour journey that makes it simple to combine Malta and Israel on a Mediterranean vacation.
Buttigieg emphasized the freshly inaugurated Jewish Heritage Malta initiative. “So few people realize that there is a Jewish Community in Malta and that Jewish history in Malta extends back to the Phoenicians,” she remarked in her comments. This unique initiative helps visitors visiting Malta to discover and identify Jewish sites of interest, as well as to engage with the tiny but active local Maltese Jewish community.”
Each has a rich Mediterranean culture, according to Martin.
“Few people are aware of Malta’s rich Jewish past, just as many people are unaware that, in addition to being the Holy Land, Israel is also a Mediterranean destination with a great range of cultures, both historically and now,” he added. “By collaborating, we can assist to remember, enlighten, and, most importantly, persuade tourists to visit both places.”
El Al Israel Airlines’ vice president for North and Central America, Yoram Elgrabli, gave a presentation at the event and gave away a roundtrip ticket to Tel Aviv as a door prize.
The “israel tourism july 1” is a joint event between Malta and Israel. The event was hosted in order to promote the countries’ tourism.
