Despite being one of the smallest countries in the world and in Europe, Malta has one of the greatest densities in population due to the great number of foreign citizens moving here.

Malta, A Magnet For Foreign Investments
The number of foreign direct investment (FDI) has continuously grown starting Malta’s adherence to the European Union, as the country adopted most of the European Union and Council’s directives which provided for foreign companies to benefit from immense advantages when investing here.
Malta’s geographical location allows trading companies to benefit from access to the Mediterranean Sea and then further to the Africa and the Far East. Companies in the Middle East and Asia have also found a good corridor to Europe through Malta, which is how the small country has quickly become an important trading centre for Europe.
Among the industries attracting FDI now are the maritime, the services, the manufacturing and the financial sectors. However, other emerging industries have started to develop during the last few years thanks to the modernization of the legislation. Among these, the electronics, IT, pharmaceutical and gaming industries are currently attracting the largest number of foreign investors.
