Almost 800 students from Maldives National University had their graduation ceremony on the Sinamalé Bridge Sunday night, local media reported, as events continued to mark its inauguration.
MNU awarded certificates to 781 students at the ceremony, where Education Minister Aishath Shiham was chief guest.
Other government-led events to have taken place on the US$200 million bridge include runs and marches from the Maldives military and police, visits from senior citizens, bus rides, bicycle rides and a parade hosted by the first lady.
A toll fee for the bridge has yet to be announced. It opens to the public this Friday.
Chinese workers will continue to maintain the bridge for two years before handing it over to the Maldives government, according to SunOnline.
