The CEO of Dhiraagu Mr Ismail Rasheed has stated that Dhiraagu will provide full cooperation to the government in expanding the telecommunication industry in the Maldives and to provide better and cheaper services to the public.

A special ceremony was held earlier today under the name “NetHeyo” (cheap internet). It was revealed that the national minimum broadband speed would be set at 2 MBps. According to the government, the price of Internet will decrease by 28-30% in the Maldives and is estimated to have a positive effect on the monthly bill of 60-75% of the population.

Dhiraagu CEO Mr. Ismail Rasheed further stated that Dhiraagu will always work with the government to expand the telecommunication industry and that within the past days they had conducted talks at multiple levels with the government.

He also stated that the President’s Office Policy Section’s work on reducing the internet price was sincere and commendable.

In his speech Mr. Ismail Rasheed also stated that internet is a necessary tool in developing the society and the country and that it is even more evident in a geographically scattered country such as the Maldives. He stated that as agreed with the government, Dhiraagu will change their broadband and mobile internet plans.

Mr. Ismail Rasheed also highlighted on the efforts by Dhiraagu to expand their services to other island but connecting these islands to the rest of the world is a major challenge.

Chinese oil and gas giant PetroChina has found a massive reserve of oil and gas in North Western China.

The oil and gas reserve was found within the Tarim Basin. According to PetroChina, the oil and gas was found in an area deemed as “ultra-deep”.  The Tarim Basin is one of the most challenging areas to explore due to its harsh and complicated  ground conditions. However, it is also highly petroliferous.

Due to this, the output from the basin has significantly increased within the past six years, from 30,000 tons a year to 1.52 million in 2020. It is expected to reach 2 million tons in 2021.
