The Malta International Business Awards are organised with a specific scope. To give due recognition to Malta-based businesses who excel at export and internationalisation. Apart from helping raise the visibility and enhance the credibility of category winners, locally and internationally, the awards will serve as an important marketing medium, as finalist will be able to use the award logo in their marketing campaigns. The awards should also help towards boosting team moral and motivation of category winners. We hope that through these awards, we will provide inspiration to novice exporters to take the plunge and seek new business opportunities beyond the Maltese shores.
