The design and feasibility report of a bridge connecting Malé City and Hulhulé will be completed by June, Economic Minister Mohamed Saeed has said.
Speaking to the press on his return from Beijing on Saturday, Saeed said: “China’s Ministry of Commerce have promised that the design and feasibility report will be completed in June.”
The bridge is to be financed by Chinese grant aid and a Chinese Exim Bank loan, and is among President Abdulla Yameen’s key campaign pledges.
