Vice President meets overseas cadets

Cadets and officers from Bangladesh, India, Singapore and Sri Lanka, who are currently visiting the Maldives under the Youth Exchange Programme, met with Vice President Dr Mohamed Waheed Hassan yesterday under a programme to trade knowledge and experience between cultures.

The Vice President said the visit would give the young cadets them “a different perspective on climate change”, and an awareness of how immediate the threat of climate change was for some countries such as the Maldives.

The Cadet Youth Exchange Programme aims to visit and participate in cadet corps activities in the exchange countries, and create among participants the awareness, understanding and appreciation of other cultures and society.
