President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih launched the government’s web portal 'islands.mv', on Monday, at the Hulhumale' Schwack Cinema.
According to President's Office, the aim of the portal is to "facilitate the local island councils to proactively market their respective islands in all areas."
This is part of President Solih's first '100-day' pledges.
Speaking at the ceremony, the President highlighted the high priority accorded by his administration to transfer powers and responsibilities previously held by government back to the councils.
Moreover, President Solih expressed his confidence that the portal will be a beneficial resource to all potential visitors to the country.
The portal acts as a "digital front office" of each island, providing comprehensive information for interested visitors, including attractions, tourist facilities and more.
