Government signs agreement with Dutch Docklands for floating golf course

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.
