CSB Group hosts the Honorary Consulate of the Republic of the Philippines with the intent of supporting the Filipino community in Malta and enhancing cooperation and business between Malta and the Republic of the Philippines.
Employment Opportunities in Malta
Over the past few years, the Filipino community in Malta has doubled and figures are rising even further. This influx is due to the many work opportunities available on the island. Many of these opportunities stem from Malta’s investments in the healthcare sector. There has also been a heavy demand for qualified household workers. A boom in the financial services sector on the island has also increased demand for professional jobs such as auditors and accountants with many Filipino’s coming to work with renowned audit firms on the island.
About the Republic of the Philippines
The Philippines has a population of 102 Million people and is the 12th country in the world by population size. The nation’s large population and economic potential have led it to be classified as a middle power.

It also hosts the headquarters of the Asian Development Bank. The Philippines is considered to be an emerging market and a newly industrialized country, which has an economy transitioning from being one based on agriculture to one based more on services and manufacturing.

The Honorary Consul in Malta is assisted by the Protocol and Consular Directorate of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
