“Sustainable development involves harnessing innovative ideas, financial resources, and advanced technology to propel growth, rather than merely cherishing the scenic beauty of naturally fragile countries like the Maldives,” Minister Saeed stated.

Following the forum, Minister Saeed told local news outlet Mihaaru that there has been growing interest in President Mohamed Muizzu’s developmental agenda, garnering considerable enthusiasm from foreign investors.

The minister attributed the government’s strong backing in recent parliamentary elections as a testament to investors’ confidence in the Maldives, which has catalyzed support from financial institutions and stakeholders alike.

As confirmed by the Foreign Ministry, Minister Saeed accompanied Foreign Minister Moosa Zameer to the forum. The two engaged in discussions on energy cooperation with over 800 officials from various nations.
