| | FEBRUARY 20224 Vol 04 · Issue 2-8 · February, 2022Resembling pearls scattered across the deep blue Indian Ocean, the islands of Maldives are irresistible in every way. It's a tourist's paradise. But the pandemic-ridden yesteryear caused severe disruptions to Maldives' economy. Since the country depends heavily on tourism revenue, the setback was catastrophic. Data from the Maldives' Ministry of Tourism showed that 460,924 tourists visited the country in 2021, compared to 555,494 in 2020 and 1.7 million in 2019. Maldives Minister of Tourism Abdulla Mausoom had recently shared his views about recovery. He said to the local media that the heavy losses sustained by the country's tourism sector due to the COVID-19 pandemic could be recovered by the end of the year. The government aims to achieve 1.5 million tourist arrivals by the end of this year. The entrepreneurs, especially in the tourism industry, need to comprehend that the new norms are here to stay at least partially and need to recognize permanent solutions to their operational problems triggered by the pandemic, alongside creating and effectually marketing a safe environment for the visitors. Professional help from IT services organizations is inevitable. IT partners could significantly aid them by finding innovative ways to help businesses, such as limiting operational expenses, improving customer experience, and catering to the need of the hour ­ digital footprint in every way possible.
