New Delhi/UNI: President Droupadi Murmu, embarked on a three-day state visit to Mauritius to attend the National Day celebrations on March 12.

The contingent of the Indian Navy will participate in the celebration along with two ships of the Indian Navy's First Training Squadron, INS Tir and CGS Sarathi.

During her three-day visit, President Murmu will hold bilateral meetings with the President of Mauritius, Prithvirajsing Roopun, and Prime Minister Pravind Kumar Jugnauth.

The President will also meet the Speaker of the Mauritius National Assembly, the Chief Justice of the Mauritian Supreme Court, and several other Mauritian leaders.

As the sixth Indian President to grace Mauritian National Day as the Chief Guest since 2000, President Murmu’s state visit underscores the longstanding and enduring ties between India and Mauritius, said the External Affairs Ministry.

"It reaffirms the continued commitment of both countries to further strengthen the bilateral relationship across all sectors and deepen our close people-to-people ties," MEA said in a statement earlier.

"During the visit, President Murmu and Mauritius Prime Minister Jugnauth will jointly inaugurate 14 India-assisted projects, showcasing the growing expanse and multifaceted nature of India’s vibrant development partnership with Mauritius that constitutes a key pillar of the bilateral relationship," it further added.

She will also witness the exchange of important bilateral agreements that seek to further strengthen the robust bilateral institutional collaboration and capacity-building cooperation between the two countries.

Additionally, she will address Mauritian youth at the University of Mauritius and socio-cultural organisations, members of the Indian diaspora, and the Indian community at the Mahatma Gandhi Institute, said MEA.
