China gets land in Maldives to construct embassy

China has been alloted a plot in the heart of the Maldivian capital to open its embassy. Chinese embassy currently works out from a rented complex and the plot has been alloted to it to construct its own building. The plot with a land area of 3,920 square feet at Majeedhee Magu near the National Stadium, is a stone’s throw away from the Indian High Commission. China had opened its embassy in November last year in a rented building belonging to the family of former Maldivian Presdient Mohamed Nasheed. China had then said that it was opening an embassy since ties with the Maldives had grown steadily. Interestingly Chinese tourists constitue the largest chunk of annual visitors to the island chain’s pristine beaches.
