MALDIVES 3RD NATIONAL DIALOGUE on Fostering Sustainable Youth Entrepreneurship

July 14, 2021

Maldives has a growing entrepreneurship ecosystem which has the potential to create sustainable solutions for the communities. With more efforts being made to further improve the entrepreneurial ecosystem and to establish the requisite institutions and organizational mechanisms to restructure and consolidate all Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) development activities, it is crucial to establish participatory processes to involve youth in policy formulation. 

This report was then developed following the National Dialogue on Fostering Sustainable Youth Entrepreneurship held in December 2019 and covers the findings and recommendations stemming from discussions among youth entrepreneurs, pioneers of startup businesses, NGOs, academic institutions, and government agencies, focusing on strengthening government services, improving access to capital, and enhancing business advisory and development services.
