Malta’s Location

Spanning an area of 316 km2 and having a population of just over 450,000 people, Malta is one of the world’s smallest and most densely populated states. Yet, while some people may consider this as a drawback, it is what actually makes the Maltese Islands so endearing.

Situated in the middle of the Mediterranean, just 80km south of Sicily, Malta’s strategic geographical position has always served to heavily influence its history, positioning it as an optimal contender for the globalised present and future.

When it comes to business, the location is also boosted by the many government and tax incentives, which, seen cumulatively, serve to create an idyllic place for businesses and corporations. In fact, Malta’s pharmaceuticals, iGaming and technological industries are flourishing, together with its economy.

The Maltese are also incredibly business-savvy and work-oriented. This perspective on life, together with high levels of education and an unparalleled multi-lingual workforce, makes the Islands the perfect home for local and foreign companies and business people looking to relocate or to expand their business ventures by opening new premises elsewhere.

The Maltese passport was named the 9th most powerful in the world in a 2013 index by the international residence and citizenship planning consulting firm, Henley & Partners. The island nation also forms part of many of the world’s biggest associations, including the United Nations and the Commonwealth of Nations. Furthermore, Malta became a member state of the European Union in 2004, joined the Schengen Treaty in 2007 and adopted the Euro in 2008.

When, to complement all this,  Malta is acknowledged as being one of the safest countries in the world, and statistically even enjoys over 300 days of sunshine a year, it is easy to understand why Malta is one of Europe’s and the Mediterranean’s best told secrets. The fact that it is extremely well-connected to all the major European airports, many of them on a daily basis, simply enhances its attractiveness.
