Malta: Country Profile
Malta has a rich history and cultural heritage rooted in its key strategic location in the centre of the Mediterranean.
Despite being the EU’s smallest Member State, Malta has been one of the most exciting countries to watch and invest in during recent years. Over the years, the island’s leaders have been on a mission to make Malta a magnet for financial services. It was their vision to turn the island into a platform for International business and to develop a model economy, which has regularly been among the best in the EU.
