India and Maldives today signed a contract for development of five eco-tourism zones in Addu atoll of the island nation.
 
Maldives foreign secretary Abdul Ghafoor, MPs representing Addu city and Indian high commissioner Sunjay Sudhir participated in the ceremony.
 
These eco tourism zones are part of grant projects being implemented under the High-Impact Community Development project (HICDP) scheme which involves a total grant assistance of  5.5 million US dollars to the Maldives.
 
Currently, there are 9 such high-impact projects being implemented in the Maldives.
 
High Commissioner Sunjay Sudhir, in his remarks, highlighted that developing high-impact assets, building capacities within the local councils and supporting of the local island economy are most important objectives of these projects.
 
He recalled that contracts for the other three HICDP projects in Addu, relating to setting up of fish-processing plants, were awarded last month. 
 
He remarked that taken together, these projects could be expected to bring about a transformation in the economic and employment landscape of Addu.
