The purpose of this engagement was to undertake an economic impact assessment (EIA) of the role and contribution of the Export-Oriented Foreign Direct Investment in the Services (EFIS) Sector within the Maltese economy. The EFIS sector encompasses a number of specific business activities that are in the tertiary productive sector, are capable of generating a contribution to exports and which are undertaken through foreign direct investment.  This EIA involved the implementation of the multiplier approach, which allowed for the estimation of the direct, indirect and induced contribution of the sector, including its contributions in terms of Gross Value Added (GVA), employment, contributions to public finances and the wider positive spill over effects of the activities of the sector. The impact of the EFIS sector’s activities was also assessed from an ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) perspective, in terms of those emanating from its target population of businesses.
