SmartCity Malta is designed to be a business hub for Malta’s knowledge economy, attracting both local and international companies. It is a joint venture between the Republic of Malta and SmartCity Dubai, where the Government of Malta has a 9% equity stake.

SmartCity is the international business parks arm of TECOM Investments and is envisioned to develop and manage a network of interconnected business townships across the world in order to replicate the astounding success TECOM has seen in its 11 business parks across 5 sectors in Dubai. These business parks attract 50,000 knowledge workers every day.

SmartCity Malta aims to achieve the following objectives:

  • Making SmartCity Malta the leading hub for knowledge based clusters
  • Creation of knowledge sectors jobs for the people of Malta
  • Attracting FDI to the knowledge sectors
  • Making a significant contribution towards increasing the share of knowledge industries towards Malta’s GDP

The Government of Malta has granted the Temporary Emphyteusis by title for 99 years. The total land allocated to SmartCity Malta is 316,707 square meters for developing a self-sustainable business township.

To date, SmartCity made a direct capital investment of €76 million in SmartCity Malta, confirming its strong commitment to the Malta project. In October 2010, SmartCity Malta inaugurated phase 1, which consists of 12,000 square meters of office space and is home to a number of international and local companies, including US technology giants CISCO and Hewlett-Packard, and a number of locally based firms.
