The Malta Gaming Authority signs MoU with the Dutch Gambling Authority in bid to boost common interests and mutually support each other in areas of policy and safe gambling
On the 28th August, The Malta Gaming Authority (the MGA) proudly announced entering into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Dutch Kansspelautoriteit (the Dutch Gambling Authority). The MoU aims to bridge the gap between the two authorities; pushing for supporting each other in by sharing practices and information in support of their responsibilities at law as well as discussing policy matters of interest. This is a mutual beneficial MoU given their shared interests of ensuring safe gambling and preventing criminality.
The Kansspelautoriteit’s Chairman, René Jansen, stated that: “I am delighted that agreements with international regulators, like the Malta Gaming Authority, are formalised and captured in Memorandums of Understanding. These MoU’s are a solid basis to share knowledge, to cooperate, and to smoothly exchange information. At the same time operators will be receiving a clear signal that hands of regulators will be joined internationally.”
The MGA’s Chief Executive Officer, Heathcliff Farrugia, expressed his satisfaction on this agreement whereby he stated that: “This MoU with the Dutch Gambling Authority is another step in the right direction, and follows other similar MoU’s which the MGA signed with other regulators over the past years. Our relationship and cooperation with Kansspelautoriteit has already yielded tangible results in the past, and with this MoU, apart from formalising such relationship, a stronger collaboration at an international level is also ensured.”
