On behalf of the directors of the Malta Freeport Corporation I would like to welcome you to our official website. I hope that it serves as a window of information about the Malta Freeport Corporation and the Maltese Freeport.
The Malta Freeport Corporation is a public authority established by means of an Act of the Maltese Parliament which has been enshrined and forms part of the laws of Malta. The initial vision behind this authority was for it to serve as an administrator of all affairs occuring in the Freeport zones found in the territory of Malta. However throughout the years, owing to the commitment shown by previous administrations and the civil servants who have served throughout the years, the authority has developed a vision which goes beyond the role of a regulator and has evolved into a key player in the economic growth within the Freeport zones and beyond.
Whilst serving its regulatory functions of granting licences to all eligible operators and maintaining a level of security which a Freeport in one of the Member States of the European Union is expected to adhere to, the Malta Freeport Corporation has furthermore sought to benefit from the geographical position which the Maltese Islands offer in the heart of the MediterraneanSea. To this end it has recently joined the MedPorts Association which will provide the Authority with another avenue of operational cooperation with the ports found in the Mediterranean.
On a local level I am pleased to announce that as part of the Authority’s Corporate Social Responsibility and also as a vision for the future, we are embarking on a number of projects which are aimed at ameliorating the area surrounding the Freeport, particularly the locality of Birzebbugia.
I am confident that the current administration and all the staff of the Malta Freeport Corporation are the right people to implement the vision which the Board of Directors has adopted and will continue to strengthen the reputation that the Authority currently holds.
I trust that you will enjoy navigating through our site, however should it not answer all of your questions, we look forward to hearing from you.
Robert Sarsero – Chairman
