The Republic of Malta is a small island nation consisting of an archipelago in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. The strategically located islands constituting the Maltese nation have been ruled by various powers and fought over for centuries, and they have a deeply rooted history dating back to Neolithic times.
Malta’s strategic geographical location played a decisive role in its history and continues to play a very important part in its economical, political and cultural development and prosperity today. Having implemented a sound legislative framework over the past decades, Malta’s accession as a member of the European Union has stimulated significant developments in the islands’ economy, brought about principally by a boost of inward direct investment into the country. In 2008 Malta adopted the Euro as its official currency offering further lucrative investment opportunities. Malta is a predominantly English speaking country with a broadly multilingual workforce and has become firmly established as a reputable business and financial centre offering attractive business solutions for individuals and international corporations alike.

Due to its excellent political relations with all European, North African and Mediterranean States, Malta is the ideal base from which to penetrate the markets in Europe, North Africa and the Mediterranean. In fact a large number of international companies have already set up shop in Malta with a view to tapping into business opportunities in terms of trade, services and investments presented by European, Southern Mediterranean and North African countries.
Malta boasts a very favourable climate all the year round, offering beautiful beaches, azure seas, a rich cultural and historical heritage and a safe living environment with access to all major European airports and excellent access by sea for both passengers and cargo. This, coupled with a robust and cost-efficient workforce, forward looking regulation and a favourable tax regime have contributed greatly towards establishing Malta as an extremely attractive jurisdiction from which to carry out business.
