Majjistral Action Group Foundation

The Majjistral Action Group Foundation is one of the Local Action Groups set up in 2009 to implement the LEADER programme and other meas- ures under the Rural Development Programme for Malta (2007-2013). Their aim is to help improve the quality of life and economic prosperity in the North-West rural areas in Malta. The foundation aims to achieve this through driving economic development, encouraging business com- petitiveness and increasing the awareness and management of the natural assets in the region.
