Malta – an investment opportunity
Strategically located midway between mainland Europe and Africa, throughout its history Malta has always been at the crossroads of the major trade routes in the Mediterranean Sea, bringing together people, their cultures and their businesses, and in so doing creating a myriad of opportunities. It keeps doing so to this very day, enabled by the excellent air and sea connections with the surrounding region and the rest of the world.
Malta can boast a highly qualified labour force, mainly thanks to a very high standard of education. Most people are multilingual and the fact that English is one of the country’s two official languages makes communication with the rest of the world so much easier.
The cost of living and rent in Malta are much cheaper when compared to other EU countries, and salaries tend to be lower too. A business based in Malta would automatically benefit from the sound local banking system, free trade agreements with the other EU Member States, the euro as a common currency, and a ready market.
Living in Malta is also a benefit in itself. The temperate weather, delicious food, multi-faceted culture, and enjoyable lifestyle are just some of the ingredients why Malta has an ever-growing expat community and the tourism sector remains one of the major contributors to the economy.
Companies and start-ups of all sizes would find Malta the perfect place for investment. Malta is the nation with regulatory innovations and emerging technologies that complement each other, creating the right conditions for companies to thrive
