HDC to Issue Thilafushi Phase II Land Plots to FDI-Approved Companies

Housing Development Corporation (HDC) has announced that 50 land plots from Thilafushi Phase II will be issued to companies approved under the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) policy.

The Ministry of Economic Development will be responsible for evaluating the foreign companies that submit bids to ensure that they are FDI-approved. Companies approved for construction work on a project basis will not be allowed to participate in the bidding process. 90% of the land plots have been designated for Maldivian businesses, and they will be able to pay for the plots under a rent-control policy.
