The Italian travel agent who once took a chance in heralding tourism across the Indian Ocean, and helped introduce Maldives as a tourist destination - almost 47 years ago - has arrived in the Maldives to participate in the Golden Jubilee celebrations. 

Mr. George Corbin was greeted at the airport by tourism pioneer and Minister of Health Ahmed Naseem along with Minister of Tourism Abdulla Mausoom and officials from Tourism Ministry and MACL.  

Mr. George will participate in “Tourism Upbeat: The Pioneer’s Talk”, an interactive discussion session organized by the Ministry of Tourism for the travel and tourism students in the Maldives. This hybrid session will discuss the experiences of Maldives tourism pioneers with students given the chance to interact and question the speakers on their curiosities in the field.  

The speakers include Mr. MU Manik, Mr. Hussain Afeef, Mr. Ahmed Naseem and Mr. George Corbin. The session will be held on February 17, 2022 at Maldives National University Auditorium. The Ministry invites all interested students to join in the discussion.
