Any reader interested in getting to know more about the FOI - who they are; what they stand for; who they represent; their objectives; their functions and their services - can browse through the federation's Website, which provides the Internet user with easily accessible and downloadable information.

The Website offers up-to-date articles on news and events the FOI are organising or is involved in. All media releases issued by the Federation since 2002 are a touch away, as are speeches delivered both locally and abroad by FOI officials and representatives.

Through an arrangement with Kompass Malta, visitors clicking on the Company Searches section of the FOI homepage, also have the facility to access limited searches on the Kompass database. Moreover, at the touch of a button, one will be linked to a site hosting various business surveys and other valuable information on business developments and trends.

This site, which is being made possible in collaboration with PriceWaterhouseCoopers, also provides links to other useful sources of information like the National Statistics Office, and contains periodic features that focus on different areas of business interest from time to time.

These features provide insight on issues relating to various aspects such as human resources, best practice, information technology and the economy.

With the above features, and more information sections, on the FOI Website, one can understand why this Website has been browsed by over 5,000 unique visitors this year alone. Approximately 7,800 visits have been recorded, with visitors viewing approximately 40,000 pages of the Website and a hit level of over 154,100.

It is interesting to note that a high proportion of visitors are from commercial enterprises or part of a network, and, while a high proportion of browsers are from Malta, visitors based in France, Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands, Lithuania and Belgium, rank amongs the highest number of hits on the FOI Website.
