President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom remarked that the Maldives still requires more foreign aid to further develop the country.

Speaking at the inauguration ceremony of the annual meeting of Heads of Missions of the Republic of Maldives held at Hotel Jen in capital Male, the president highlighted the efforts laid to develop the nation. Noting that the Maldives is no longer listed as a small developing state, he stressed the need of aid and assistance that were provided to the Maldives in the past.

Hence, he urged to shape the works of the heads of missions such that further aid may be acquired.

“We should always work to achieve economic advancement from whichever ways possible,” added the president.

President Yameen pointed out that explaining the critical environmental situation of the Maldives is one way to earn developmental aid.

While speaking about the housing units built in the reclaimed suburb of Hulhumale, he also noted that the government is not capable of building sea walls and establishing coastal reinforcement all across the country and, therefore, the solution is centralization.
