What is Maldives Famous/Known For?
9Underwater Cabinet Meeting
The Maldives is an archipelagic country that sits in the Indian Ocean. When it comes to geography and topography, the tropical nation bears no semblance to other countries in the world. These are some things the Maldives is famous for. Most cabinet meetings in the world are held around tables in well-arranged conference rooms, but the government of the Maldives did something no one had ever done in 2009. The President, Mohamed Nasheed, instructed that the cabinet meeting for October same year be held under the bottom of the ocean. The President together with 12 of his appointed officials were clad in scuba gears and sat around desks that were sunk underwater. This was done to create awareness about threats to the island.
