Maldives set to pull out of China trade deal

“Critics in the Maldives say a China-led infrastructure boom has left the tiny country of a little more than 400,000 people debt-ridden, and a free trade pact would only make the situation worse given the lopsided nature of the relationship. Between January and August this year, the Maldives’ imports from China were $342mn, while its exports to China were just $265,270, according to Maldives customs data.”
