Established in 2013, the MoU will ensure continued collaborative efforts between the Malta and Alderney regulators.
The partnership focuses on enhancing cooperation, enabling the MGA and AGCC to perform their respective functions more effectively. These include preventing crime, protecting consumers and the protection of vulnerable persons against gambling addiction.
The MGA and the AGCC will also work to promote international regulatory cooperation in the wider industry. This they say, aligns with the view of the cross-border nature of the gambling market.
“The renewal of the MoU with the AGCC continues to reaffirm our shared commitment towards supervising a safe and responsible gaming ecosystem across the board,” MGA CEO Carl Brincat said.
AGCC executive director Andrew Gellatly added: “We look forward to continuing and strengthening our valued collaboration with the MGA, to the benefit of both players and stakeholders.”
Mizzi to replace Brincat as CEO of Malta regulator
Confirmation of the continued partnership comes after the MGA last month announced Charles Mizzi as its new CEO.
Mizzi will replace Brincat with effect from 26 January. Brincat is stepping down after two years at the helm.
He joins the MGA from Residency Malta Agency, where he served as its CEO for five years. Mizzi has also worked in a range of other senior roles during his career. These include being head of the image and communications unit at BNF Bank.
