In the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, seventy miles south of Sicily, and almost equidistant between Cyprus, at the one end, and Gibraltar at the other, lay the Maltese islands. Although fairly small in size, Malta has exercised an influence on the History of the Mediterranean quite out of proportion to its size. Almost every power that dominated, or attempted to dominate, the Mediterranean, made use of Malta’s magnificent natural harbours, and Malta commanded the north-south trading routes between Sicily, Italy and North Africa, as well as a large part of the east-west routes.
Over the years Malta has evolved even more and today remains an important shipping centre, not only for the Mediterranean, but for the whole world. Among other maritime facilities Malta offers a number of ship and yacht repair yards of international repute and boast of worldwide customer. Regular containerised and conventional Liner Services link Malta to the major ports of the world and the Malta Freeport boasts the most modern cargo handling equipment and extensive warehousing facilities for the handling, storage and part manufacturing of goods destined for the Mediterranean, Black Sea, Red Sea and the Arabian Gulf markets as well as an oil storage and blending facility.
