Principles & Governance
The name ‘Malia’ has several derivative meanings associated with ancient civilizations. In Indian mythology, the letter M symbolizes the glorious rise of the fiery phoenix. For the Romans, the Latin word ‘Malia’ corresponds to ascension and correlates with the idea of striving to be the best. The Germanic tribes used the word in relation to hard work and industriousness. Today, Malia Group draws strength and inspiration from these ancient and timeless wisdoms.
