About Us

Malta is a fantastic place to do business, and Maltese businesses have endless potential in the wider world.

At TradeMalta, we are here to prove exactly that. Formed as a public-private partnership between the Government of Malta, currently under the remit of the Ministry for Foreign and European Affairs and Trade, and the Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry, we are dedicated to helping Malta-based businesses go international.

With this in mind, we offer a range of services tailored to the needs of companies that are planning to make that first step into the world of internationalisation. From assessing the markets to honing your product, there is so much that can be done to make the leap easier, more efficient and more effective.

To achieve this, we provide specialised training programmes in international business development and marketing, administer a number of incentives schemes and internationalisation programmes, and promote worldwide business opportunities.
