President Muizzu will be visiting several islands in the south including Addu City, Fuvahmulah City, Gaaf Alif and Gaaf Dhaal atolls as part of the tour.

During the meeting held at the Secretariat of the Addu City Council, councilors touched upon ways to improve health services and address issues with access to medications, water sanitation, powerhouses, the electricity sector, and ports.

They also engaged in discussions regarding social and infrastructure development in the southernmost city, including housing, sports facilities for youth, creating jobs, land reclamation in Hulhudhoo-Meedhoo, road construction, and concerns of farmers and fishermen.

The meeting also saw members of Addu WDC speaking about the city's social needs and financial challenges they face.

Listening to these concerns, the president assured that he would work with relevant authorities to seek agreeable solutions to the issues raised at the meeting.

He went on to assure that his administration would prioritize the city’s economic advancement when implementing development plans.
