Helping you reach your International Growth goals

By John

Various commercial opportunities provided in International markets, are not available in the local market due to our small size. We acknowledge that there is a demand for such scopes amongst many progressive businesses locally, who aim towards constantly pioneering their product and service offering.

Trade Malta has launched, the International Trade Promotion Incentive Scheme (ITPIS), targeting such businesses that want to take the next step in their business life-cycle and focus on international markets.
