Maldives Marketing and Public Relations Corporation (MMPRC) announced seeking interested PR corporations to promote Maldives in specific international destinations.
The state based corporation announced seeking interested PR corporations from China, Macao and Taiwan, adding the companies will be hired on a one year contract.
Destination promotion of Maldives is carried on a larger scale than previous years with 15 foreign offices and embassies across the globe and four diplomatic public relations corporations utilized for the cause. The state owned public relations corporation is also digitally marketing Maldives on various platforms.
Acting managing director of MMPRC Haris Mohamed said last December the online marketing initiated by the corporation proved essential and beneficial in promoting Maldives across the world.
Tourism Ministry statistics indicate a total of 726,515 holidaymakers visiting Maldives during the first six months of 2018, marking a 10.5% increase in tourist visits for the same period last year.
