Malta is also considered an ideal logistical hub due to its excellent port infrastructure. It is classified as an Advanced Economy by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and an innovation-driven economy by the World Economic Forum. This, together with EU membership in 2004, and adoption of the Euro in 2008, makes the country a perfect gateway to the Euro-Mediterranean region. Malta is a full trade member of the EU, WTO, OSCE and Commonwealth. Being an English-speaking nation, Malta is the perfect hub for international business.
