Abstract

This paper reviews the development problems of Malta. Independence was achieved in 1964 since when two main styles of development have been pursued: open economic growth in the 1960s| and more centrally planned Mintoffian development in the 1970s. Industry and tourism have been major growth sectors of the economy since independence. Although there has been an attempt to assert Malta's independence and neutrality, the economy still rests on external support.
