About Malta

Malta, a tiny republic country in southern Europe, is an island country in the center of the Mediterranean Sea, known as “the heart of the Mediterranean” and “the village of Europe”. The official languages are Maltese and English, the capital Valletta. Most of the residents believe in Catholics, while a few believe in Protestantism and orthodox.

In Carthaginian and Roman republics, because of the Mediterranean trade and prosperity, the power of the post Arab Empire once dominated here for a while. The order of Malta, a special political entity headquartered in Rome, got its name because it occupied Malta for centuries. In the 10th and 8th centuries BC, Phoenicians settled here. In 1523, the Knights of St. John in Jerusalem moved here from Rhode Island and occupied by France in 1798. It became a British colony in 1814, declared its independence in September 1964, is now a member of the Commonwealth, and founded the Republic of Malta in 1974. Joined the European Union in 2004.

Malta is a highly developed capitalist country. Its economy is dominated by services and finance. Tourism is the main source of foreign exchange in Malta. Malta has trade relations with more than 100 countries and regions, and the EU is Malta’s most important trading partner. In addition, Malta’s social security system is relatively complete, with free education, free medical care and retirement insurance.
