In January 2019, the Malta Gaming Authority hosted a visit from members of the Coroner and Gambling Policy Division of the Department of Justice and Equality of the Republic of Ireland.

The visit was coordinated by the Technical Assistance and Information Exchange (TAIEX) initiative of the European Commission, with the aim of assisting the Republic of Ireland in creating a new regulatory framework and a new regulatory authority for gambling.

Following a tour of the MGA offices and a discussion around staff and divisional breakdown of the organisation, the MGA organised a number of presentations over two days, covering regulatory topics such as online and land-based licensing and compliance, anti-money laundering, responsible gaming, financial compliance, player protection, statistics collection and more.
