Malta’s Foreign Policy Strategy continues to build on current and previous achievements, defining Malta’s foreign policy, based on its interests and core values. It provides an outline for the next 10 years, with short-medium term objectives to be achieved by 2023, emanating from the following three strategic goals: Support values, well-being and prosperity of Maltese citizens; Promote Peace, Security and Dialogue; Maximise opportunities for influence in strategic regions and multilateral fora. This is crucial for Malta to remain a credible and coherent actor in foreign policy, being able to respond to the needs and demands of the constantly changing global environment. The Strategy is being shaped by the Ministry for Foreign and European Affairs (MFEA), and while MFEA retains the overall responsibility to coordinate, consult and provide guidance on many of the areas identified in the strategy, the underlying goals can be reached through coherence, collaboration and cooperation.
