Maldives Telecommunication Policy 2006 - 2010
Telecommunication can play a vital role in linking our dispersed communities and
reduce the impact of the geographical isolation and physical separation that exists
between island communities of Maldives. Telecommunication will also play a major
role in achieving the economic and social developmental objectives envisaged in the
Vision 2020 of Maldives.
As a country with limited natural resources, info communication technology can be
the tool in developing the skills for obtaining knowledge and information, increase
productivity and to promote our products and businesses in the global market. It is
essential, therefore, that modern telecommunication services be made available at
affordable prices, in order to create an environment conducive to foreign investment,
in areas beneficial to the country.
This Maldives Telecommunication Policy has been formulated in view of the
economic and social development needs of the country and to facilitate and achieve
the above objectives. The policy identifies and addresses key issues in the sector in
6 major areas. This policy will facilitate sustainable development of
telecommunication services for the next 5 years.
