Business

As a country with few natural resources and a small domestic market, Malta is heavily dependent on foreign trade. The most important economic sector has long been the service industry, first for the Order of Malta, from 1800 to 1979 for the British naval base, today in the tourism sector. With the exception of 2009, the Maltese economy can look back on solid growth rates in gross domestic product (GDP) since 2005. It benefits from structural reforms that were carried out in connection with joining the EU in 2004 and joining the monetary union in 2008. The gross national income (GNI) per resident was (2017) US $ 23,810. The inflation rate is 0.9% and the unemployment rate 5.4%.

Foreign trade: The foreign trade balance is traditionally negative (import value 2015: € 5.2 billion; export value: € 2.3 billion). The main export products are electronic and chemical products. The main imports are machines and transport equipment, fuels and food. The main trading partners are the EU countries, Singapore and the USA.

Agriculture

Around 1.1% of the workforce worked in agriculture in 2016; the share in the gross domestic product (GDP) is 1.3%. The development of agriculture is limited by water scarcity. The food demand has to be met to a large extent by imports. In addition to new potatoes, onions and wine, important export products are also floriculture products (cut flowers, bulbs and seeds).

Fishing: Despite the island location, fishing only plays a subordinate role economically. In the meantime, fish farming (2013: 3 930 t) has gained in importance compared to marine fishing (2 356 t).

Service sector

Services account for 84.3% of GDP. With the help of its own stock exchange (since 1992) and advantageous tax legislation, the government is trying to establish the island state as a location for financial service providers in the EU.

Tourism: Tourism is one of the country’s most important sources of foreign currency and generates around 20% of GDP. More than 1.69 million foreign visitors come to the island annually, most of them from Great Britain, Italy and Germany. The number of cruise tourists is 626 100 (2016). A balanced Mediterranean climate with a bathing season from May to November as well as historical sights from six millennia offer a variety of recreational opportunities.  Check campingship to see Malta Travel Guide.

Natural resources

With the exception of salt and natural stones, Malta has no mineral resources. This is why the island state has great hopes for the exploitation of the oil and natural gas reserves in the Mediterranean (currently exploration), which five Mediterranean countries are fighting over.

Energy industry

In the energy sector, Malta is currently completely dependent on imports. Electricity is generated in two thermal power plants based on oil and gas (capacity: 620 MW). Renewable energies (wind, sun, biomass) should, however, be used more.

Industry

The industrial sector generates 14.4% of GDP (2016). Smaller production companies of medium-sized companies dominate the manufacturing sector. With the construction of new facilities (e.g. dry docks, shipyard in Marsa, container and free port in Marsaxlokk Bay), Malta is developing into a center of the shipbuilding industry in the Mediterranean region. The other branches of industry are characterized by a variety of products; Machine, vehicle and electrical appliance construction, pharmaceutical industry and information technology are dominant. The traditionally strong sectors such as textiles and clothing, leather and furniture, on the other hand, are losing importance. About half of the drinking water production is realized by seawater desalination plants.

Transportation

Malta has a well-developed road network (length: 2,704 km), which on the main island is oriented towards Valletta and on Gozo towards Victoria. Railways are not available, but the island state has a good network of bus routes. There is regular ferry service between Malta and Gozo. The port of Valletta can be used by ships of all sizes. Luqa International Airport (Ħal-Luqa) is located south of Valletta.
