Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday that Mauritius is a prime example of India’s approach to development partnership which is based on the needs and priorities of its partners and noted that this has emerged as a key pillar of close ties between the two countries.
PM Modi and Prime Minister of Mauritius Pravind Kumar Jugnauth on Thursday jointly inaugurated the India-assisted social housing units project in Mauritius virtually. They also launched the Civil Service College and 8 MW Solar PV Farm projects in Mauritius that are being undertaken under India’s development support. “I am happy to join Mauritius Prime Minister Pravind Kumar Jugnauth on the completion of social housing projects. We are particularly glad to be associated with this important effort to provide affordable houses to the common people of Mauritius,” PM Modi said.
“We are also initiating today two other projects that are critical to nation-building, a state-of-the-art Civil Service College and eight Megawatt Solar PV project,” he added.
The Prime Minister said the solar project will help mitigate the challenge of climate change that Mauritius faces as an island country.
“Our robust development partnership has emerged as a key pillar of our close ties. Mauritius is a prime example of India’s approach to development partnership which is based on the needs and priorities of our partners,” he said.
The Prime Minister recalled the joint inauguration of the metro express project, the ENT hospital and the new Supreme Court building and said he was “delighted to know about the metro’s popularity crossing the 5.6 million passenger mark”.
