Part of convention centre roof falls to ground

A piece of ceiling on the outside of the Equatorial Convention Centre has fallen to the ground, reports Haveeru.

The centre was the venue of the recent SAARC Summit attended by leaders from around the region.

Haveeru spoke to a member of Addu City Council said Amin Construction was working to repair the ceiling.

“It’s an aluminium ceiling and it wasn’t a large part that fell,” the council member told Haveeru.

The government is seeking bids for the management of the Rf150 million (US$10 million) convention centre, and for the construction of a 100-bed hotel at the site.
