So why do so many people consider Malaga one of the best places to live, to work and to invest? Perhaps it is its strategic position on the Mediterranean coast or the low cost of living juxtaposed with a high quality of life, but perhaps it has more to do with the fact that Malaga is an entrepreneurial Smart City with a surrounding innovative ecosystem called Malaga Valley where rich historical heritage & technology meet to improve the quality of life for everyone. Malaga’s economic growth was 4.47 in 2018, 3.9 % in 2017, 3.7 % in 2016 and  3.9 % in 2015.  14 companies per day were created in 2018, as Malaga continues to lead regional growth and is ranked 4th nationally. 1,000 jobs were created last year in the technology sector as employment in the Andalusian Technological Park (PTA) grew more than 8%.  The PTA is home to 646 companies and employs 19,873 workers.
