“The tourism sector in the Maldives is booming“, said a delighted Moosa Zameer, the country’s tourism minister. Last year’s partner country of ITB Berlin recently set up its own embassy in Berlin, “an important step for tourism in our country“, the minister said. Hussain Afeef, vice chairman of the Maldives Association of the Tourism Industry, added: “Tourism is important for economic development in the Maldives.“ Looking at the figures, the prospects are good: as early as January a 15 per cent rise in tourism gave tourism professionals cause for joy.
