Business Profile

Joining TradeMalta as Chief Executive Officer in 2015, I helped shape the trade promotion strategy which supports Malta-based businesses to internationalise and become export-ready. A dedicated team of professionals at the organisation provides a wide-ranging portfolio of services that caters for different modes of entry within specific markets.

We also pride ourselves in encouraging businesses to reach out of their comfort zone and establish new partnerships in non-traditional markets.

The aim of the entity I head is to help define and strengthen Malta’s profile around the world as a reliable business partner and a fantastic country to do business with overall.
