Investment Climate

The Maldives is in the process of democratizing with a stable and progress-oriented government.

Always an advocate of free enterprise, pro market policies are strongly embedded in government’s economic vision which promotes a liberal and a transparent trading and commercial environment.

With liberal investment policies, including the right to incorporate businesses with 100% foreign ownership, no restriction on repatriation of profits and a highly liberal trade policy regime, the Maldives is ideal for thriving investments.

The process of introduction of regulatory reforms to maximize investment security is underway, including the enacting of a Special Economic Zones Act to facilitate special economic incentives and a flexible regulatory environment for mega investment projects.

InvestMaldives – A one-stop shop has also been established to guide investors at every stage of the investment process and will pave the way for speedy commercial operations.
