The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) and the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) has been renewed, solidifying their collaborative efforts in regulating the gambling industry. Established in 2013, the MoU focuses on enhancing cooperation between the two regulators to better perform their functions, such as preventing crime, protecting consumers, and preventing gambling addiction. The partnership also aims to promote international regulatory cooperation within the industry, recognizing the cross-border nature of the gambling market.
MGA CEO Carl Brincat expressed his commitment to supervising a safe and responsible gaming ecosystem through the renewed partnership with the AGCC. This collaboration is expected to benefit both players and stakeholders alike. The AGCC’s executive director, Andrew Gellatly, also emphasized the importance of strengthening their collaboration with the MGA for the mutual benefit of all parties involved.
The renewal of the MoU comes in the wake of the announcement of Charles Mizzi as the new CEO of the MGA, replacing Carl Brincat. Mizzi’s appointment is set to take effect from January 26th, marking the end of Brincat’s two-year tenure as CEO. Mizzi brings with him a wealth of experience, having previously served as the CEO of Residency Malta Agency for five years. He has also held various senior roles, including heading the image and communications unit at BNF Bank. The MGA and AGCC’s continued partnership, coupled with the upcoming leadership transition, reflects a concerted effort to maintain a robust and responsible gambling environment.
