Maldives to sponsor BBC world weather forecasts

The world weather service of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) will be sponsored by the Maldives between June 18 and August 21, the Maldives Marketing and Public Relations Corporation has said.

An agreement with the BBC regarding sponsorship of its international weather broadcasts is scheduled to be signed tomorrow at the Conrad Rangali Island Resort as part of a wider international marketing focus by the country’s tourism authorities.

The BBC, Britain’s public service broadcaster, is the world’s largest broadcasting corporation in terms of audience numbers and employees.
