Abstract

This book commemorates the fiftieth anniversary since the establishment of the Central Bank of Malta. It attempts to develop a longer-term perspective of the fundamental changes that transformed Malta's economic and financial landscape during this period and, in conjunction, the changing role of the Central Bank of Malta. The publication is divided into two parts. The first part gives an overview of the Maltese economy and the financial system, outlining trends and structural changes over the five decades after 1968. The second part of the publication reviews the Bank's operations since its inception. Its operational history can be divided in three main periods, reflecting the Bank's evolution from an organisation carrying out central banking functions in the context of Malta's fixed exchange rate regime, to an institution becoming an integral part of the Eurosystem.
