Pillar 3 : Education and Employment

Pillar 3 : Education and Employment


A key economic pillar rests on stimulating education and employment to further elevate the labour force to a level that competes with the most advanced and attractive economies. To achieve this Malta must:

  • Frame the future skills landscape and prioritise the closing of skills gaps

  • Align education curricula with the skills required for tomorrow’s economy

  • Establish Malta as an International Education Hub of Excellence

  • Reskill and upskill the workforce with the skills required for tomorrow’s economy

  • Attract and retain diverse talent while curbing brain drain of the best talent
