Over the past decade, Malta has become the leading and most attractive center of the ICT industry, thanks to the strong and united efforts of the government and industry. The latest e-government study by Capgemini has made Malta the number one place in Europe, while the International Quality of Life Index 2011 places Malta at the top of the list second
It is therefore no wonder that many of the industry’s major names are represented here, and TECOM Investments from Dubai chose Malta as the location for its first smart city in Europe. The English-speaking country is an ideal basis for IT companies to settle development teams or establish a sales center for the European market.
Malta’s plus points:
- an attractive corporate tax;
- especially for companies from the knowledge industries: a package of funding opportunities that significantly reduce entrepreneurial risk;
- lowest cost structure in the English-speaking countries of the EU; Operating costs for high value added activities are up to 57% lower in Malta than in Northern Europe.
- is already an established investment location among the leading companies in the iGaming, financial services and IT industries;
- modern IT infrastructure, one of the most advanced in the region and meeting the highest demands of specialized online service providers.
- One-stop shop for government services – maximum processing time of 10 days for inquiries of any kind, from work permits to grants.
In addition, the Ministry’s delegation will report on the latest developments and progress of the Smart City Malta project, which was inaugurated at the end of last year.
