As per MMPRC, the purpose of the trip s to establish the Maldives as one of the most preferred tourist destinations in the Nordic region and to promote diverse experiences, especially the luxury and gastronomy segments of the Maldives.

In this regard, the trip will generate tremendous coverage showcasing the resplendent Maldives’ resorts and unique experiences, ranging from gastronomy and wellness to watersports and other unique experiences.

Apart from this, it will also highlight the unique geographical advantage of having our islands scattered – the one island, one resort – concept – which makes Maldives one of the safest holiday destinations in the world.
