MPL Unveils New Labour Shelter

Maldives Ports Limited (MPL) has officially opened a new state-of-the-art shelter for labourers who work at the port. The initiative addresses long-standing concerns about the lack of proper resting facilities within the harbour zone.

The need for improved accommodations was a focus during President Dr. Mohamed Muizzu’s 2023 presidential campaign. President Muizzu acknowledged the issues faced by labourers and highlighted the lack of rest areas as a significant concern.
