Malta is a democratic country with a strong history of government stability.
Its long-term economic, political and social stability is a valuable metric by which one can also measure the country’s quality of life, economic prospects and propensity for investment. It draws further jurisdictional strength as an EU Member State, an integral part of Schengen and the eurozone and a member of the Commonwealth.
Malta ranks as the safest place in Europe and the second safest place in the world. The country’s crime rate is negligible and women can go out alone at night without the fear of harassment. Malta has civil liberties at heart, boasting civil rights for LGBTIQ+ persons and a wider progressive society. As a welcoming nation, foreigners and expats moving to Malta will immediately feel safe, secure and right at home.
Marked by centuries of foreign occupation due to its strategic location, the Maltese archipelago is steeped in history and culture. A string of conquests, most notably those by the Arabs, Sicilians, French, British and the Knights of St. John, have all contributed to the country’s chequered legacy.
Malta’s education system is based on the British model and is very highly regarded. With a choice of state, church and private schools that combine
a focus on high academic achievement with extra-curricular personal development, residents have peace of mind when planning their children’s future.
Malta enjoys an unhurried pace of life. With 300 days of sunshine a year and surrounded by some of the clearest waters in the world, island life offers an abundance of things to do. For those who like to stay active, Malta offers an array of hiking, diving and watersport activities. Malta’s theatres, museums, heritage sites and music festivals are a treat for culture buffs, while the young can enjoy nightlife and after-work pub drinks all year round.
Maltese residents enjoy excellent quality medical care that ranks highly in the world. Public and private hospitals as well as local clinics offer an excellent service and a network of strategically located government health centres provide care coupled with convenience.
Malta’s strong economic landscape makes it an ideal base from which to do business. The country has consistently punched above its weight in economic growth and frequently makes it to the top ranks of fastest growing industries in the EU. With booming industries like gaming, hospitality, financial services, pharma, maritime and aviation, paired with various incentives from the government, entrepreneurs are encouraged to invest and contribute to the country’s economy.
