Tourism minister Moosa Zameer announced that December 2017 marked the highest number of tourist arrivals in the history of the Maldives.

During the special forum held Wednesday on the integrated resort development project in Enboodhoo lagoon, Zameer said that over 1.3 million tourists visited the Maldives during 2017. This is a five percent increase compared to the figures of 2016.

Although Zameer proclaimed that a record number of tourists visited the Maldives in December 2017, he did not reveal any specific figures.

He noted that this achievement was achieved because the state and relevant industries had worked together, adding that the hard work of private parties has made the Maldives the number one tourist destination over the past 45 years.

The minister declared that he was extremely proud of the achievements of the Maldivian tourism industry.
