The cabinet, in a meeting today, decided to utilise all means to ensure that the Maldives become one of the ‘New7Wonders of Nature’.

The Maldives, which was nominated for the ‘New7Wonders of Nature’ campaign early this year, started a campaign to vote for ‘New Seven Wonders of Nature’, on 3 October.

The cabinet noted that becoming one of the ‘New7Wonders of Nature’ will enhance Maldives’ image and increase its popularity. The cabinet therefore called for nation-wide contribution to the Maldives’ campaign.

Members of the cabinet also discussed on ways of boosting Maldives’ campaign, including seeking the assistance of friendly countries.

In its meeting, which was chaired by Vice President Dr Mohamed Waheed, the cabinet also discussed a paper on corporatization of health facilities.

The cabinet decided to corporatize health facilities under Health Services Corporations to be established. Eight companies are to be established in Malé and other regions, for this purpose.
