In this regard, Minister Shainee announced the commitment of the Government of Maldives, to go a step further to enhance the renowned sustainable fishery of Maldives, to reduce and phase out use of plastics and intercept ocean plastics in the 1-million square kilometer wide EEZ of Maldives. Maldives collaborates closely with Parley for the Oceans to recycle and reuse plastic wastes.
