Summary: This report is an attempt to set the Bank's initial diagnosis of the problems and prospects of the Maldivian economy in the context of the country's historical background and of its society, polity, and economy. The poor quality of the data combined with the comprehensive nature of the coverage has prevented exploration in greater depth of some issues. The initial section, the setting, includes a description of the economy as well as recent economic performance and development issues; the second section, describes the major sectors, - fisheries, tourism, agriculture and industry, and economic infrastructure and social services; and the third section discusses development priorities in the 1980s and the role of external assistance. The Maldives' development potential appears good, and many of the problems can be addressed quickly and easily, given adequate resources and appropriate policies and programs.
