Jobs in "Malta" sorry aint the most lucrative place to go for engineers, but im shure they will go because of getting paid in Euros and the lower pay from Murika. I wish Global foundries luck. Theyre a privately held company a spin off amd and have no reason to have massive changes constantly or getting sacked by corporate vips like amd is. Still itd be nice to see an ipo from them, i mean theyre going into the mobile chip biz, thats gotta yield some dividends.

It says Malta, New York in the sub-heading
I don't know where GlobalFoundries fits in the big picture, but they have 190,000 300mm wafers/month 28/32nm-45nm and 189,000 200mm wafers/month, essentially 0.13-micron. That seems like quite a bit, but TSMC goes 650k starts/month. They look to be able to readily expand sales with available capacity for some interesting stuff (SOI and/or Bulk).
And, the UAE simply is not going away. They've got the capital to invest. With infrastructure in place, and expanded education and training, they're eventually going big in Abu Dhabi with a new foundry. Probably a bit more exoctic than Malta with nicer golf courses. AMD was likely a big chunk of previous R&D, too, so GlobalFoundries had to step it up.
Again .... Thanks to ATIC for investing in America. Youse New Yawkahs make us proud
