International Financial and Capital Markets

THE FORUM

International Financial and Capital Markets:

The Maldives Pension Administration Office, as the country’s largest potential institutional investor, sees the development of the Financial Sector and financial literacy a key imperative to achieve its strategic intent and objectives.

 

In 2012, the Maldives Finance Forum was launched and became a widely acclaimed event with overwhelmingly positive responses from the stakeholder community. The  themes of the last two forums were aimed at the Public Sector with the expectation of positive policy responses from that sector. The ideas were well received by the policy makers. This year’s theme was developed with an expectation of Private Sector led positive developments to the Financial Market.
