Mediterranean Lifestyle, Business Diversity
With its booming economy, highly competitive tax codes, 300 days of sunshine a year, and a well educated, English-speaking workforce, Malta is the place of choice for many leading, forward-thinking firms.
Nestled in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea just south of Sicily, it should come as no surprise that Malta’s warm weather and abundant beaches have produced a substantial tourism industry. In fact, 2.3 million tourists visited Malta in 2017, bringing with them a tourism expenditure of €1.9 billion.
Malta’s Freeport operation, located in the southern tip of the island, is the third largest freeport in the Mediterranean and one of the most active in Europe.
But sun and sea are definitely not all that Malta has to offer. Financial services industries are particularly welcome in Malta. Beginning in 2004, a number of key initiatives have been instituted to make the island the clear choice for basing your operations, restructuring your company, planning your finances, or establishing EU residency.

History and Culture
Malta joined the European Union in May 2004, and became independent from British rule in 1964. The Knights of Malta ruled the islands from 1530 to 1798, leaving an impressive architectural legacy and European heritage.
The main island of Malta is 316 km², while the sister island of Gozo is 67 km². When on either island, you’re never more than 9km from the sea.
The current population of Malta is approximately 450,000, with a high influx of additional tourists.
English and Maltese are both official languages of Malta, and you’ll find you can get along quite well in Malta speaking only English.
Living in Malta
With direct flights from nearly every European country as well as a number of other nations, Malta is easily reached as a destination and an ideal base from which to fly to other locations.
Making yourself, your clients, and your employees comfortable in Malta is no problem. Choice hotels, from 5-stars down to budget, are available throughout the island.
If you’re staying longer, knowledgeable real estate agents can guide you to the perfect flat for rental or purchase.
