At a meeting with the people of Olhuvelifushi, President Mohamed Nasheed has said that real development will come when individuals’ disposable income increases and when more job opportunities are created in islands.
The President said the government had a development vision for Fadhippolhu atoll by integrating Fadhippolhu with Noonu atoll, Raa atoll and Baa atoll through a public transport network.
President Nasheed spoke on the necessity of a nationwide transport network for the development of the Maldives, where people live in small islands separated by sea.
Establishing a transport network is one of the five key pledges of the government.
President Nasheed left for Fadhippolhu on Thursday and will return to Male on Friday.
