Dharamshala, India: A Japanese firm, Daiwa Securities Group, recently created presumable confusion and embarassment among Chinese authorities as the firm presented a map on which Tibet was shown to belong to India, as did the non-Tibetan part of China's Yunnan province.
The map was part of a business proposal to the People Insurance Company of China (PICC) who only found the error after the actual interview. Subsequently, PICC officials have asked Daiwa to remake the map and to offer a formal appology.
According to newssite www.wantchinatimes.com the matter was also reported to the China Securities Regulatory Commission as well as the China Insurance Regulatory Commission who are now considering their next move in this politically sensitive issue.
The Japanese company itself put the error down to "negligence", but several security experts have expressed doubts that the alternative map could be excused as merely "unprofessional".
