Maldives Pension Administration Office (MPAO) announced Wednesday that preparations are underway for the annual Maldives Finance Forum,  which is to be held April 30 in Kurumba Maldives resort.

The forum’s objective for this year is for participants to discuss ways to fund socioeconomic projects in conjunction with relevant institutions, and for experts in the field to share their experiences.

Discussions would also focus on the opportunities and challenges facing the advancement of “syndicate financing”, strengthening ties between financial institutions, and exchange of information on developing the financial sector in the Maldives.

“The progress of the Maldives’ financial market is vital to carry on the pension system. Hence the main objective of this forum is to facilitate discussions between the government and the private sector on how to develop the financial sector,” said a senior official of the Pension Office.

Participants at the forum will include representatives of the finance sector, state institutions, private firms, and foreign financial bodies.
