Why Malta?

1. Excellent location

Malta lies at the heart of the Mediterranean, a few hours from most European cities and from North Africa. 
 
From time immemorial, Malta’s destiny has been intimately linked to the sea. Its strategic location in the center of the Mediterranean – coupled with its excellent, deep and sheltered harbours – has been mainly responsible for Malta’s development as a maritime centre. Its harbours provided a safe and useful haven on the major sea-routes and established Malta as a major entrepot for trade and an important bunkering station.
 
 
Within the Mediterranean, maritime navigation, trade and commerce have flourished under the influence of widely accepted and respected rules of maritime law, at times codified as in the Consolato del Mare. Malta’s maritime role has ensured that the study and practice of maritime law has flourished amongst the island’s legal profession. Indeed, it is this legal tradition which contributed to the formulation of the Maltese initiative at the 1967 United Nations General Assembly that culminated in the adoption of the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. Malta also hosts the Regional Marine Pollution Emergency Response Centre for the Mediterranean Sea (REMPEC), established under the Mediterranean Action Plan of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and administered by IMO.
 
Malta has been a member of the European Union since May 2004, is politically stable and is strongly oriented towards the outside world. Malta is a signatory to many important international agreements, mainly in the economic and financial domains, but also with regard to maritime, transport and cultural matters.
 
2. Smart Workforce
 
The Maltese workforce is well-qualified, flexible and multilingual. The quality of education is high, which leads to high productivity and therefore lower unit costs. The majority of the Maltese population is fluent in Maltese, English and Italian, with the former two being both official languages. Although Mediterranean culture dominates the island, the place is fraught with relics of the British rule. The British governed Malta for over 150 years, and the British touch is still felt in small, charming habits like afternoon tea, driving on the left and bow windows. The locals are friendly, warm, lively and sometimes even noisy.
 
3. Smart for Investment
 
Pharmaceuticals, electronics, information communications technologies, agri-foods and precision engineering are just some of a number of sectors offering prolific investment opportunities. 
 
Acting as a bridge country, Malta is fast becoming a regional hub for dynamic financial services, i-gaming and back-office services.  An attractive package of incentives, including tax breaks, subsidised factory space, soft loans and rebates on training and employment costs is offered to investors interested in Malta. It has a comprehensive network of double taxation treaties, fiscal advantages in line with EU legislation, a growing professional class of highly trained and qualified individuals, a well-established cadre of professional advisors, and excellent electronic communications and flight connections.
