President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih on Monday visited and met with the management and staff of the Maldives Marketing and Public Relations Corporation (MMPRC). The President recognised the vital role of MMPRC in promoting the Maldives as a tourism destination and extended his gratitude to the staff for their invaluable contributions to the tourism sector.
