Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a consideration with Union Cabinet has approved the opening of Consulate General of India in Addu City, the Maldives in 2021.

Maldives and India share ethnic, linguistic, cultural, religious, and commercial links with each other. Maldives occupies an important place in the ‘Neighbourhood First Policy’ and the ‘SAGAR’ (Security and Growth for All in the Region) vision of the Government of India.

The start up of a Consulate General in Addu City will help India’s diplomatic presence in the Maldives.

The bonding in the co-operative relationship have reached unmatched levels under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi and President Solih.

It is also a forward-looking step in pursuit of India's national priority of growth and development named as 'Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas'. Augmentation of India’s diplomatic presence will, inter-alia, provide market access for Indian companies and bolster Indian exports of goods and services.

This would have a direct impact in augmenting domestic production and employment in line with our goal of a self-reliant India  termed as ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ starting by the PM Modi.
