President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih says the government has spent a considerable amount out of state funds on the development of Addu City.

He made these comments at an online meeting with MDP candidates competing for local council seats in Addu City last night.

President Solih said that the government has spent a substantial amount on the development of Addu City in the last two years and this amount is almost equal to that spent on the development of the Male' Area.

The President said in the past two years MVR 535 million worth of developmental projects have been carried out in the Southernmost city.

He further said that most of the developmental projects planned in Addu City are now underway and the remaining handful of projects would be mobilized in the coming months.

President Solih added that all of the developmental projects in Addu would be completed before the end of his presidential tenure.
