In October 2014, the Malta Communications Authority (MCA), together with Government, published the eCommerce Malta National Strategy, 2014-2020 , aimed at ensuring that businesses have the necessary means and skills to capitalise on opportunities brought about by eCommerce. The strategy sets out Government’s policy in relation to eCommerce and identifies a series of initiatives that are to be implemented during the strategy plan period.
