    Very informative piece. All true.

    A housing Crisis on Malta is amplified by Island Living and lack of land.

    The businesses that came to Malta for a protective license have benefited from the growth. The low cost, tax haven and attractive to young people were all great reasons. Stories of **** banking and high cost of living/rents for employees and businesses starts to level out why it'll slow down.


    It's rumored their is a significant number of pending licenses that are taking much too long and will scare some businesses away.

    Very true article. The thing is when too many companies come to a small place and take advantage of all the perfect taxation and some other handicaps , at some point market is saturated. And how come they can find enough talents or work force? In some level there are intelligent and capable people, who are just changing the companies for bigger wages.

    All the companies who have overcrowded the Island can take a bright look to Central and East Europe for further investments. The thing I do not like most about Malta is the heavy traffic as its infrastructure is not made for such "masses".

    Eastern Europe is also a good tech hub for many companies in the sector. I speak about Bulgaria, Roumania, Estonia and Ukraine.

    Malta is too small for another companies wanting to join after BREXIT

    I guess Malta will not just slow down, but way worse...

    Malta lacks a proper banking infrastructure, space and it's simple not an island where people want to live forever. Other countries have more space, a competitive tax system and opportunities to open bank accounts.

    For those who are not aware, pls take a look at Sofia and Bukarest. Two amazing cities with great opportunities.

    Malta is just good to go for a conference and get back faster. Traffic is comparable to the one in Lonforn and Rome.

    Regarding banking infrastructure, I have to agree with Triple7, there is no such.

    Spain ftw. Feck Malta. Spent 7 years there. never going back. Place is so corrupt and broken, no surprise that even the bloody police are on the take, en masse.
