Maldives Transport and Contracting Company Plc (MTCC) marks 41 years of service since its establishment in 1980. 

Attended by the President of Maldives, Ibrahim Mohamed Solih, a special ceremony was held at Henveiru Football Stadium to celebrate the occasion. Speaking at the event, President Solih described MTCC as one of the most important partners, one that the people trusted for its quality of service and timely completion of projects. 

CEO of MTCC, Adam Azim also extended his remarks and highlighted that with the expansion of the company, they are taking on more projects and the duration to complete these projects have shortened over the past few years, “In 2018, MTCC carried out 25 projects simultaneously. Currently, 94 projects are being carried out at the same time.” Azim estimates the profit to be higher for the company this year compared to 2020.  

One of the largest projects currently undertaken by MTCC is the first phase of the "Integrated National Public Ferry Network"—a large-scale project that would introduce efficient, affordable, convenient, and sustainable passenger and cargo ferry services across the country. The first phase of the project would see the launch of ferry services in Haa Alifu, Haa Dhaalu and Shaviyani Atolls. 

The company aims to train 100 individuals in the next three years under its technical skills training programme. During the ceremony, President Solih was presented with a copy of the book "Kaamiyaabu 40" about the achievements of MTCC over its 40-year history by Mohamed Faheem, the Chairman of MTCC. 

At the function, President Solih also presented commemorative plaques to long-serving employees of the company, with Vice President Faisal Naseem handing over letters of acceptance to participants who were selected for the employee training programmes for 2021.
