The Malta Gaming Authority has recently welcomed a delegation from the Gaming Commission of Ghana for a visit aimed at fostering collaboration and sharing best practices in the field of gaming regulation and supervision.

The visit provided the Ghanaian delegation with the opportunity to learn more about the MGA’s set-up and structures. The Authority also shared an overview of its licensing and compliance processes, criminal probity assessments, anti-money laundering supervision processes, and risk-based approach to regulation.

The delegation hailed the MGA’s “wealth of knowledge and expertise in the gaming industry”, adding that the Ghanaian Commission should benchmark their processes and procedures against those of the Authority.

“This visit has demonstrated the importance of engaging more with stakeholders, and of adopting a more robust data collection process and a wider range of enforcement approaches and guidelines,” Deputy Commissioner Kobby Annan said.

The MGA’s Chief of Policy and International Affairs, Kinga Warda, said that the Authority believed in fostering global partnerships and sharing knowledge to enhance the integrity and sustainability of the gaming industry.

“Our collaboration with the Gaming Commission of Ghana signifies our commitment to promoting responsible gambling practices, regulatory excellence, and fostering a secure and transparent gaming environment,” she said.

The visit ended with a tour of the land-based establishments, thus providing further insights into the sector.
