The Ambassador


Daniel Azzopardi joined Malta’s Public Service in 2007 as an officer within Malta’s EU Funds Managing Authority within the Office of the Prime Minister.

In March 2009 he took on his first assignment in Brussels as Technical Attaché in charge of the Energy and Land Transport dossiers at the Permanent Representation of Malta to the European Union. He held this position until 2015, and during his term was also responsible for liaising with European Union bodies on the implementation of Malta’s national energy priorities.

At the start of 2016, he returned to Malta as Chief Executive Officer of The Energy and Water Agency, a Government body tasked with developing and implementing Malta’s national policy on energy and water.

In 2018 Mr Azzopardi was appointed Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary, Permanent Representative of Malta to the European Union, a position which he held until July 2020.

He holds a master’s degree in Contemporary European Studies, from the University of Sussex (UK), and a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in European Studies from the University of Malta.

Daniel Azzopardi is married to Dr Roberta Azzopardi and they have 4 daughters.

Mr Azzopardi is currently Malta’s Ambassador to Spain.
