The government is carrying out special efforts for the infrastructure development of the council offices using investor finance.

This was announced by President Dr. Mohamed Muizzu, during an address delivered on the occasion of Decentralization Day.

Stressing that there has been a lack of focus on boosting council infrastructure over the course of the past 13 years, the president highlighted that the government's goal is to create an environment where councils can carry out their legal duties, communicate with the public and collaborate effectively.

Noting that visible results have been observed by creating a separate ministry to enhance decentralization, the president noted that the pace of implementation is increasing as the work with the government and councils increases on the issues.

Further, he noted that the policy established and enacted to ‘bring uninhabited islands under council jurisdiction, enable residents to gain profit’ signifies a beneficial shift in the decentralization system.

The Maldives' formal legislative framework allowed for the decentralization of government on 26 February 2011.
