BMFS Awards

The Benelux-Maldives Friendship Society (BMFS) has established a three-tiered award scheme (gold, silver and bronze).
The BMFS awards are granted to individuals and recognises outstanding achievements or contributions for the Maldives, relations between the Maldives and the European Union or its Member States and in particular the Benelux countries.

Awardees are characterised by a sustained, continued and exceptional commitment to the Maldives over an extended period of time. Candidates from all walks of life (government, civil society, business) come into consideration for the award.
The Board Members of the BMFS, during their regular meetings, draft and decide on the list of awardees.
