According to today's Times of Malta, the price of a number of medicines sold on the local market should go down by the end of summer. Apparently the Working Committee on the Pricing of Medicinal Products has found that, during an exercise to compare local prices with the average in the EU, while a number of products were selling at prices below the average, others were more expensive. So now the Working committee is going to ask the medicinal products importers to reduce prices to the EU's average.

So far so good. The only problem is that the average Maltese paycheck comes nothing close to the average paycheck in the EU. and what about Maltese pensions, are they close to the average in the EU?
