Maldives, China discuss declining tourist numbers


Meeting with Chinese ambassador and tourism minister

Tourism Minister Moosa Zameer and Chinese ambassador for Maldives H.E. Zhang Lizhong has met to discuss the declining number of tourists to the Maldives after the government declared a state of emergency on February 5.

In a tweet by Maldives Marketing and Public and Relations (MMPRC), it said that discussions were about the potential impacts of the recent decline in Chinese tourists.

In addition to the tourism minister, Island Aviation’s managing director Abdul Haaris and MMPRC’s acting managing director Haarish Mohamed took part in the meeting.

The tourism ministry had not shared any details of the discussions held on Sunday.

After China had advised their tourists against travelling to the Maldives due to the declaration of the state of emergency, many guests have cancelled their booking to resorts, guest houses and safaris.
