With its liberal trade policies and low tax regime, Malta has huge trade opportunities to offer India,  especially in the manufacturing,  pharmaceuticals, logistics, energy and financial services.  Business between the two countries has historical significance as both are former colonies and trade between the two countries started back in 1887, when some Indian merchants transferred their business to start selling handicrafts from  Malta.  Since joining the EU in 2004,  Malta has become one of the favourite destinations for international businesses. In fact companies like  Aurobindo Pharma and other Indian firms have already shown great confidence in Malta by setting a base on the island.  Though both countries may be different geographically they have a lot of similarities including the fact that English is widely spoken. In fact, a bilateral agreement was signed between the two countries which take care of issues like double taxation.  Malta also offers a lot of advantages including • Free and good education system  • Outstanding communications  • Flight connections to all Europe and North Africa  • Efficient Freeport  • Excellent free health care  • Lowest corporate tax in Europe at 5%  • Grants for businesses through the Malta Enterprise and the EUCoupled with the above  Malta also offers incentives to film companies through the Malta Film  Commission by offering a maximum 22%  rebate on the spending of the production of movies on the island.  In fact, in the last two years, we have seen the first film productions from  Bollywood in Malta.  Malta has become ideal for foreigners to obtain residency in Malta.  With great Mediterranean weather,  welfare, proximity to Europe, short travel distances, and low crime it is an ideal place to live as a foreigner especially for business,  leisure, retirement, or work purposes.  Although Malta is just 316 square kilometers, it also offers all the luxuries which one expects in a modern country. About 1.6 million tourists  visit Malta annually, which is about 4
times its population.  Economically Malta is very strong in pharmaceuticals, aviation, shipping,  logistics, banking, betting, and financial services. The GDP  has been steadily around 4%-6% in the last 5 years and all areas of the economy have grown rapidly. In fact,  more than 20% out of the workforce of 195,000 are foreigners.  Malta will now be the first in the

EU to regulate ICO’s, cryptocurrencies,  the setting up of cryptocurrencies exchanges, and service providers of Distributed Ledger  Technology (DLT).
