Additionally, ATA has requested to register the companies in the Ministry who are taking an active role in selling properties as well as to ‘Rate’ the travel companies in the listing.

ATA had previously met with President Solih and Mr Ali Waheed. During this meeting the government had promised to pass this legislation in the first 100 days of the new administration.
