Tourism Diversification and Localisation Unit and Excom Members of Tourism Ministry are holding meetings for local tourism development. According to the Tourism Ministry, these meetings involve discussions on local island tourism development and tourism diversification.

On 5th June 2021, the Tourism Diversification and Localisation unit and Excom Members of the ministry met with the H. Dh. Atoll Council, Kulhudhuffushi City Mayor, and the members of parliament from the constituencies in the atoll. The ministry also conducted meetings with the council and parliament members of Shaviyani Atoll on the same day.

In addition to meetings conducted with members from these atolls, the ministry also conducted a meeting with Noonu Atoll Council.

Tourism Minister of the Maldives, Dr. Abdulla Mausoom thanked the commitment of parliament members and council members for tourism localisation and diversification.

The Tourism Ministry of the Maldives also held the first meeting with the Tourism Golden Jubilee Steering Committee on 4th June 2021. According to the ministry, the first meeting involved discussions on the activity calendar of the celebrations for the ‘Maldives Golden Year 2022’.

As the island nation looks to further strengthen and diversify its tourism industry, the pandemic has tremendously affected local tourism businesses. However, with solid safety measures against the virus, the Maldives continues to welcome thousands of tourists every day.

Arrivals have however declined in May 2021 (compared to previous months of the year) as the island archipelago suspended entry from India; one of the major tourist source markets. Despite the many challenges, Maldives targets to welcome 1.5 million tourists in 2021.
