“We are taking every effort to rise to the challenging situation and find practical ways to keep the Maldives visible on the travel radar in future. I thank the invaluable support received from PATA and Tripadvisor in developing this webinar, which I hope will be very useful for the Maldives tourism industry marketeers.
