New opening hours at Business First

Forming an integral part of Malta Enterprise at its head office in Pietà, Business First provides authoritative information and assistance on over 50 Government services for businesses. Clients are assisted to apply for these services from one centralised location and provided information on incentives and schemes offered by Malta Enterprise.
