President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih has decided to allocate 300 flats under the Gedhoruveriya social housing scheme. This allocation comes as part of the government’s ongoing efforts to provide affordable housing solutions for the country’s workforce.
State Housing Minister Akram Kamaluddin confirmed this development and stated that these 300 flats are specifically earmarked for individuals who have dedicated 15 years of service to the vibrant tourism industry. The allocation of these housing units is set to make a significant impact on the lives of dedicated tourism employees who have contributed substantially to the Maldives’ vital tourism sector.
These 300 flats are part of the second phase of the Gedhoruveriya scheme, which opened applications on Sunday. In total, the government made available 6,000 housing units under this initiative. The allocation of a portion of these flats to tourism employees is a testament to the government’s commitment to ensuring the welfare and housing needs of those who have played a crucial role in the country’s tourism success story.
The Gedhoruveriya social housing scheme has been instrumental in addressing the housing needs of various segments of the population, and the inclusion of tourism workers in this initiative further underscores the government’s dedication to providing equitable access to affordable housing.
As the Maldives continues to navigate the economic and social challenges in today’s world, such initiatives aimed at supporting key industries and their employees are crucial for the well-being and stability of the nation. President Solih’s decision to allocate these flats serves as a commendable step in recognizing and appreciating the hard work and dedication of tourism employees in the Maldives.
