Despite being a small island in the middle of the Mediterranean, Malta has proven that it has much to offer within different sectors on a national and international level.

Its thriving economy has allowed it to make a name for itself within its rapidly growing Freeport, where it has created a high-technology manufacturing sector for high quality processing and distribution facilities. Through numerous incentives and opportunities, Malta has also established itself as the leading EU provider for gaming services.

Malta has also shown significant growth within its banking, mutual funds, insurance and trust service sectors, not to mention world-leading blockchain legislation. Through its low corporate tax regimes, many companies have been attracted to its shores to make use of its sophisticated business and professional infrastructure.
