Dhiggaru Council President Ahmed Nishan informed local media that the project has secured a budget of USD 500,000. Nishan highlighted the employment opportunities for Dhiggaru’s youth within the tourism sector.

At the same time, a forthcoming tourism project is expected in Dhiggaru, centred explicitly around homestay tourism. The Decentralization Act allows councils to undertake projects within their designated jurisdiction, contributing to significant revenue initiatives across various islands.
