When Eddie Fenech Adami was first elected Prime Minister in 1987, the economy was in shambles. In the previous 5 years, private sector employment declined by nearly 11% and tourism was stagnant. He immediately realised that if he wanted the economy to recover and grow into a modern expanding economy his government had to invest in the country’s infrastructural facilities. His government started an aggressive investment process – new power generation facilities, Freeport, airport, desalination plants, telecommunications, health, education and inter-island transportation. He laid solid foundations for our economy to flourish, the people will be forever grateful.

Kien hemm fi tmeninijiet, biex ta lil pajjiż Xoghol, Ġustizzja u Liberta u kien hemm għal Malta fl-2003, meta iffirma it-Trattat ta’ Sħubija ta’ Malta mal-Unjoni Ewropeja.
Eddie Fenech Adami kellu viżżjoni għal pajjiżna u irnexxielu ibiddel li pajjiż, għal pajjiż modern kif nafuh illum. GRAZZI EDDIE.
“George Borg Olivier was a Statesman, Dom Mintoff was a politician, but Eddie Fenech Adami was both”.
He has written a new page in the Maltese history with his Foresight, Leadership, Stability, and most of all his Governance. A God Sent for the country. His leadership was, above all, an example to one and all.
May god keep his hands on him for all his family to enjoy.
The name Eddie Fenech Adami brings back many memories of when I was in my teens. Those were bad times to say the least, but Eddie was there to show us the way and lead us forward, always keeping in mind peace, justice and freedom. As my late father used to say, he was what Malta needed. Today’s generation only have him to thank for the good quality of life they experience nowadays. There are no words that can express my gratitude and admiration towards this great man.
Eddie and the Nationalist party brought the real changes our country needed. He was a reformer. His values, determination and sense of duty led the country and its people to most of its successes in recent history. Thanks for providing us with this valuable information through this website.
Il-poplu Malti ghandu jkun grat lejn Eddie Fenech Adami. Dak li llum niehdu ‘for granted’ huwa grazzi ghal-politika u l-vizjoni tieghu. Illum ghadna ngawdu minn decizjonijiet ghaqlin li ha hu. Minkejja li llum hemm min qed jipprova jerga jikteb l-istorja ta’ pajjizna, lkoll nafu minn xhiex kellu jghaddi l-pajjiz u l-poplu biex illum wasalna s’hawn.

For us Eddie represents hope and resilience. He led us through the most difficult and turbulent times of our history. His vision for modern Malta was a beacon of light. He gave us courage to stand up for our basic rights. His vision for European Malta became our hope. A true leader, statesman and father of our nation.

I do not think that contemplating the life of a man of Dr. Fenech Adami’s stature can ever do him justice; I believe, however, that we honor his ideals best by seeking to learn from his dedication to democratic and pro-European principles.
My outlook on our country’s future will always be guided by the conviction with which he sought a better economic future for us all. His belief in bridging the gap between the Europe we culturally and historically are a part of, and the European Union which is the prime driver behind Malta’s contemporary success, serves to remind us that we must try hard to achieve that which we would otherwise expect to fall in our laps, an attitude which Malta greatly benefitted from and needs now more than ever.
Although not being born in the 80’s, I probably know more about Eddie than I know about my own family. On a weekly basis, my family spoke highly about Eddie, ranging from the beginning of his political career, the harsh realities under a labour government, all the way down to his presidency. At first, I couldn’t grasp the true importance this man had in my life and I always thought that what he had done for our country could have been done by any political figure back then. However, I was very wrong! It is safe to say that thanks to Eddie I am where I am today by creating a new redefined Malta; a Malta filled with hope.
Eddie Fenech Adami is one of Malta's most influential statesman whose contribution led to the development of a democratic state based on the respect of fundamental human rights and civil liberties which were regularly abused prior to his election as Prime Minister in 1987.
A Nationalist Party (P.N.) politician, Eddie served as Prime Minister of Malta from 1987 until 1996, and again from 1998 until 2004. He led his party to win five general elections, in 1981, 1987, 1992, 1998 and 2003. Staunchly pro-European, he led the country to join the European Union in 2004 after having won a national referendum. Fenech Adami is the longest serving Maltese Prime Minister since Malta's independence in 1964.
