Minister Dr. Hussain Rasheed Hassan has arrived in Boston, America to attend the Seafood Expo from 13th March to 15th March 2022.
Minister was accompanied on the visit by Director General of Fisheries Department Adam Ziyad. The expo was attended by several companies that produce and export fish products in the Maldives. E.g., Ensis Fisheries, Big Fish Maldives, and MIFCO - Maldives Industrial Fisheries Company Ltd.
The expo will provide an opportunity to promote and market Maldivian fisheries products to international markets. It will also facilitate the acquisition of more markets for Maldivian fish exporters, by identifying opportunities in foreign markets for fish products exported from The Maldives. Participating in such expo will further pave the way for the government's efforts to provide a better price for fishermen.
During the visit, Minister Dr. Hussain Rasheed Hassan and Director General Adam Ziyad will also meet with scientists from the University of Centre Barbara, California, and hold important discussions on the development of protected areas and sustainable fisheries.
