New corporate identity for Smart City in Malta

Smart City Malta is a planned technology park to be constructed in Kalkara, Malta. The plan is to transform the Ricasoli Industrial Estate into a state-of-the-art information technology and media city on the models of Dubai Internet City and Dubai Media City. The project will cost at least 275 million Euros. The whole development, which covers an area of 350,000 square meters, is to be fully completed in 2021.

On Saturday, the new corporate identity for SmartCity was launched at the Gitex Technology Week at the Dubai Internet City Community Zone. The logo reflects the international network and opportunities that the Smart City can offer for future development. All Smart City international logos, including Smart City Malta, will bear the new logo.

Smart City Malta, which promises to transform Ricasoli Industrial Estate into a state-of-the-art Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and media business community, is expected to create 5,600 jobs over eight years. Meanwhile Smart City Kochi in India has the potential to generate over 9,000 occupations.

SmartCity Malta is the first overseas export of SmartCity brand that emerged from Dubai Internet and Media Cities in the United Arab Emirates. It will also be the first European outpost of the SmartCity concept synergising the advantages of Malta’s European Union membership with Dubai’s revolutionary record in the ICTs and Media businesses.

Smart City is made up of TECOM Investments and Sama Dubai. The company is currently examining other countries for developments of similar cities.

Present for the logo launch ceremony were Sheik Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Vice Head and Minister of Finance and Industry for the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Ahmad Bin Byat, TECOM Investments Executive Chairman, Farhan Faraidooni, Dubai Executive Chairman, Abdullatif Al Mulla, TECOM Investments Executive Head and Fareed Abdulrahman, SmartCity Executive Director.
