The government has signed an agreement with Dutch Docklands of the Netherlands to develop, operate and manage water properties in the Maldives.
Dutch Docklands is a global leader in tailor-made floating developments (such as floating beaches and restaurants) using methods and procedures it claims will reduce the environmental impacts on sea-life and minimise the changes to the coast lines.
The agreement includes a floating convention centre and golf course in the Maldives.
The agreement was signed at a ceremony held at the President’s Office last Thursday afternoon.
President Mohamed Nasheed and Ambassador of the Netherlands, Mrs Leoni Margaretha Cuelenaere, were present at the ceremony.
