Malta’s award-winning international airport has regular and direct flights to major cities in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. The airport is located just 6km from the Freeport and only 15 minutes from the main industrial and commercial centres.

In addition, the country has invested €17 million in the Safi Aviation Park, a new aviation park of 200,000 square metres with direct access to the airport’s runways and housing an aircraft servicing cluster.


Malta’s strategic location has meant that it has fast become one of the most important logistics centres within the region. An excellent infrastructure and port facilities for cargo and passenger transport have also contributed to the recognition of Malta as a leading logistics hub on the international level.


Malta’s ICT industry went through a period of consolidation that resulted in an impressive expansion of the sector in recent years. With an approximate investment of almost €300 million, TECOM Dubai’s Smart City project has certainly placed Malta on the map within the global ICT arena.


The education system in Malta is based on the British model and comprises a large number of public, private and international institutions. The University of Malta and the Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology also work in close collaboration with the industry in order to tailor-make courses structured to ensure a highly-skilled workforce is always available.

Advanced Manufacturing

As an island with no natural resources to speak of with the exception of its workforce, Malta has moved from low-end manufacturing to high value-added operations over the last twenty years. Today, the industry is focused on high-end manufacturing such as precision engineering and electronics, pharmaceuticals and medical devices.

Positive FDI inflows recorded

Malta’s Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflows for the first half of 2013 turned positive, statistics published by the National Statistics Office show.

The positive increase in FDI inflows was mainly the result of an increase in foreign owned equity capital, which increased by €79 million in the first half of 2013.
