Sources have stated that President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih will depart to the United States of America this weekend.
The President will reportedly depart to New York to join the 76th Session of the United Nations General Assembly which will commence on September 21.
President Solih will spend an extended period of time in the USA. The president’s previous visit to the USA from September 21, 2019, to September 30, 2019, cost a total of MVR 4,171,823.42. He was accompanied by a large number of people.
While President Solih has decided to depart to the USA, the state’s budget deficit has reached MVR 7 billion. However, the government still has no plans to cut down on its operational expenses.
