During a recent campaign event in Addu City, President Muizzu reiterated his commitment to fulfilling promises made to the city’s residents. He specifically assured that work on the GIA project would begin this year.

The Addu Asseyri Tourism Development Plan is projected to generate an estimated 10,000 job opportunities for the region. Specific initiatives include the creation of a cultural village, a wellness zone, and the designation of protected areas. Furthermore, the plan proposes the establishment of a hospitality school to support skill development within the tourism sector.

A key milestone in the plan is the reopening of the Shangri-La Villingili Resort, a significant step in bolstering the region’s tourism industry.
