The increase in the budget for the Ministry of Tourism from $32 million to $36 million has been a welcomed move.
Tourism Minister Faiyaz Koya says the extra $4 million will go a long way in helping his Ministry with their marketing campaign.
“We got what we asked for. We don’t just blindly ask for a figure it’s targeted and most of it with respect to tourism it was to do with marketing we needed the extra funds and we pretty much got what we asked for so we are quite happy.”
Koya says the program for this budget year is quite full and that his team has a lot on their hands.
