The European Commission established its Delegation in Malta on the 29th of November 1991. During the twelve years until membership, the Delegation was involved in a wide range of diplomatic, commercial, cooperation, information and cultural activities.
On Malta’s application to join the European Union, the Delegation was focused on preparations for membership through pre-accession technical assistance, monitoring and on-going contacts with the administration, constituted bodies and civil society.
In March 2003, the people of Malta made a historic decision by voting yes at the Accession Referendum to join, with the existing Member States of the European Union and the other Accession countries, forming a Union of twenty-five Member States. That decision was confirmed by the signing of the Accession Treaty in Athens on 16th of April, 2003. On the 1st of May 2004 Malta took its place as a Member State of the European Union. Today our office represents the European Commission in Malta.
