Understanding the Macroeconomic Impact of Migration in Malta

No PP/04/2015, CBM Policy Papers from Central Bank of Malta

Abstract: This paper tries to evaluate the macroeconomic impact of increased economic migration to Malta. Administrative data show that the proportion of foreign workers has risen from 1.3% of the total workforce in 2000 to 10.1% in 2014. In the absence of immigration, the working age population would have shrunk slightly, instead of rising by 3% since EU accession. While the bulk of these migrants are in managerial, professional and technical occupations, there are a growing number of foreign workers in elementary occupations and in clerical and support duties.
