City Council invites applications for the Addu Tourism Advisory Board

Addu City, Maldives – Addu City Council on Tuesday opened applications for the newly constituted Tourism Advisory Board by the Addu Tourism Committee.

This is the second time that the city council has invited applicants to join the Addu Tourism Advisory Board due to lack of interest when announced for the first time in January 2022. Application due date is on April 7, 2022.

Applicants with prior education and experience of the tourism industry will be given priority in constituting the board.

Multiple projects are planned for Addu tourism development presently including city council backed plan to increase the city’s bed capacity to 8,000, developing a 120 bed hotel at Gan island and real estate tourism in Hankede.

Even as guesthouse tourism is on the rise in the southernmost city, the largest luxury resort remains closed. Recently, Canareef Resort Maldives was reopened after a long hiatus due to the pandemic.

With the removal of public health emergency status from the Maldives, tourism opportunities are forecasted to rise significantly.
