ADB has partnered with the Government of the Maldives since 1978. The government’s policy envisages development partners specializing in providing assistance to certain sectors or thematic areas to reduce duplication and overlap, and to minimize aid transaction costs. ADB focuses on capacity building in public sector financial management, and support for transport, energy, and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). In this context, the country partnership strategy (CPS) has been prepared in close consultation with the United Nations, the World Bank, and other development partners.
