Two agreements were signed on Tuesday afternoon between the NDSF, SportMalta, and the Malta Motorsport Federation to secure the funding agree- ment. The project will cost €20 mil- lion, of which €16 million will be financed through the NDSF, which receives money through Malta's golden passports scheme. Clifton Grima, Minister for Education and Sports, said that the NDSF's support for the project is proof that govern- ment sees sports as a central issue on the national agenda. He added that the project ca- ters foremost to sports enthu- siasts who will be able to prac- tice the sport in their home country. Parliamentary Secretary Alex Muscat said that the project will create no less than 300 jobs, indicating a positive rate of return for the initiative. He remarked that the project creates a level playing field, with many enthusiasts current- ly forced to practice the sport in Italy and England. "The NDSF invests in what makes us Maltese and what has always brought us honour. It was created so that the wealth generated by foreign invest- ment can funnel into the local community." Duncan Micallef, President of the Malta Motorsport Fed- eration, said that motorsports enthusiasts feel that they are fi- nally being recognised by gov- ernment. "With this signing we are now officially part of the invest- ment," he said. He praised government for always offering their full coop- eration while working on the investment. "The work might not show yet, but I assure you that a lot of work is being done." Hal Far motorsport track will receive €16 million from golden passports fund
