Foreign Investment and Trade

 

The Embassy of Maldives in Tokyo facilitates foreign investment and trade in the Maldives for potential investors in Japan and South Korea through its Commercial Diplomacy Unit.

 

Foreign investors can either register a business as a FDI or opt to submit proposal under the unsolicited proposal's policy, and the Government of Maldives welcomes foreign investments in the Maldives through four possible routes:

 

  1. Foreign Direct Investments
  2. Unsolicited Proposal Policy (USP)
  3. Investment Funds at Maldives Fund Management Corporation
  4. Participation in Government tenders

 

The following Investment Guide Book (in Japanese language) provides an overview into guidelines and availability of diverse and viable investment avenues for investors in the Maldives.

Additionally, the Investment guide book also offers a glimpse into success stories of Japanese Investors in Maldives.
