Maltese living standards are high. Inflation (2% - 3%) and unemployment (around 5%) are low. Malta's economic strategy is based on the development of the tourism industry, manufacturing and financial services.
Especially tourism is growing rapidly. Malta's tourism industry, the old-fashioned cheap and fun holiday package image, and the conference trips, culture and training tours, cruise ships, such as developing large markets, is moving to the next level. This strategy came to life with the newly built Portomaso building and port facility near Paceville and a plan to turn the old Cottonera pier in Vittoriosa into a harbor for super yachts.
In particular, the manufacture of high-quality goods such as electronics, clothing, footwear and woven fabrics is another important sector of the Maltese economy. The state-owned Malta Ship Repair Pools and Malta Shipbuilding Shipyards employ about 6000 workers. At the same time, the state has created new units of measure to develop Malta as an international financial center. Despite all these positive movements, there is still a large budget deficit that needs to be tackled.
