Yearbook 2000

Malta. In February, Malta began negotiations on EU membership. According to COUNTRYAAH, the ruling Nationalist Party promised a referendum on the EU, which if everything went as planned would be held before the 2003 parliamentary elections. Before that, however, Malta had begun to adjust to the requirements set by the EU, and an EU report in November 2000 stated that Malta together with Cyprus were the applicant countries that have come the longest in creating a functioning market economy.
