Summary:

The Maldives suffered devastating damage from the December 2004 tsunami. Although human casualties were limited, damage to infrastructure was extensive, with the cost of reconstruction estimated at nearly a half of GDP. Tourism declined by a third and the economy contracted in 2005. Fiscal management has deteriorated and foreign reserves declined from 3½ months of imports a year ago to 2½ months.
