The Gozo Business Chamber announces the sudden passing away of its president, Joseph G Grech, at Gozo General Hospital this morning at the age of 78.

Grech, with great dedication, served the Chamber from its inception in 1999, first as Chief Executive Officer and since 2016 as President.  His contribution over all these years was instrumental in getting the Chamber recognised as the main representative of the Gozitan business community, both on a national and international level.  In fact, Mr Grech had recently been appointed as president of INSULEUR, the association of Chamber of Commerce of Island Regions.


Grech, an ex-teacher by profession, was known as the perfect gentleman. He dedicated his life to the Scouting movement in Gozo and was actively involved in various other philanthropic organisations on the island.  He is a great loss for the island of Gozo.

The council of the GBC would like to pass on its condolences to Grech’s family. 

The Gozo Ministry also issued a statement to express its sorrow.
