Maldives announces major new economic transformation projects during WTM

His Excellency Mohamed Anil, Attorney General, has today announced several new tourism developments taking place in the Maldives for 2018 during a press briefing at World Travel Market in London.

The announced plans include expansion of the recently rebranded Velana International Airport and the opening of the China-Maldives Friendship Bridge in July 2018 as well as development plans of the health services in the Maldives, providing world-class medical care to both the community and the tourism industry for 2018. Furthermore, the Maldives Government is also looking to build a Youth City on Hulhumalé, an island adjacent to the capital city, with the aim of providing accommodation and employment for future generations.

The new developments in the Maldives will support the increasing demand for tourism to the island nation, with the UK continuing to be an important inbound market with 68,007 UK tourists visiting the country from January – August 2017. This figure accounts for 7.6% of all tourists visiting and is the second highest share across all inbound markets for this period.
