The main purpose of the project is to build the capacity of the Maldives to use trade information to network its support institutions and provide support services to SMEs. In turn, the trade information system will promote stronger linkages with the most successful economic sectors in the Maldives, namely tourism and fisheries and ensure positive spill over effects on the other economic sectors.
Objective 1: Market intelligence and trade policy information is easily accessible and communication among institutions improved, thus enabling the Maldives to take advantage of market opportunities and to fully integrate into the multilateral trading system.
Objective 2: Inter-sectoral linkages and business matching are increased through the use of a "real-time mobile business information system"
