Nazim, who is currently on a campaign tour ahead of the September 9 presidential election, said that the Greater Thiladhunmathi region is strategically located in the northernmost part of Maldives and has the potential to become a major economic and tourism hub.

He outlined a number of key initiatives that he would implement if elected president, including:

  • Establishing local and adventure tourism: Nazim said he would focus on developing local tourism and adventure tourism initiatives in the region, which would promote its natural beauty and create opportunities for economic growth and employment.

  • Internationalizing Khedhufushi Airport: Nazim said he would work towards internationalizing Khedhufushi Airport, which would improve connectivity and attract more visitors to the region.

  • Building a luxury shopping center: Nazim said he would build a luxury shopping center in the region to cater to the growing demand for high-end retail and provide residents with convenient access to a wide range of products and services.

  • Opening a new college: Nazim said he would collaborate with the education sector to open a new college in the region, which would offer quality education and contribute to the intellectual and academic growth of the region's youth.

  • Developing specialized hospital departments: Nazim said he would develop a hospital with specialized departments focusing on major diseases, which would provide better medical services and facilities for residents.

  • Promoting sports: Nazim said he would promote sports in the region by fostering the growth of sports associations and providing opportunities for athletic development.

Nazim said that his plans for the Greater Thiladhunmathi region reflect his vision for comprehensive development across various sectors. He said that if elected president, he would work diligently to fulfill these commitments and ensure progress and prosperity for the region.

In addition to the above initiatives, Nazim also pledged to address other key issues facing the region, such as the lack of employment opportunities, the poor state of infrastructure, and the need for improved healthcare services. He said that he would work with all stakeholders to develop a comprehensive plan for the region's development.
