MANUFACTURERS INDEX of MALTA


Malta provides significant opportunities for the establishment of profitable industrial undertakings in a low cost and convenient location.

The country's industrial strategy is based on encouraging foreign direct investment. The emphasis is on the enhancement of the existing technological skills base, encouraging the need for higher technology, increased value added and high quality manufactured products.

Malta is an ideal choice for activities which focus on:

  • the manufacture of medium-and high-technology products requiring special skills
  • the manufacture of semi-customised small batch products requiring 'just-in-time' delivery
  • manufacturing activities that require a significant degree of quality control
  • operations requiring access to European Union markets
  • service companies seeking a location to meet international demand for their products
Industry is concentrated in 13 industrial estates spread throughout Malta where ready built standard factories are available on demand.

A fundamental development in the government's current strategy to attract investment was the creation of the Mosta Technopark, a purpose built facility to house advanced technology companies.

To help potential investors the Government administers a generous incentive package for the manufacturing industry which include:

  • 10 year tax holidays for new export oriented companies
  • training grants for approved programmes offered to employees and management soft loans
  • ready built factories at subsidised rents
  • duty free importation of plant, machinery and all materials
  • full repatriation of capital and profits
  • duty free importation to the EU
  • liberal work permit policy
