Indian President Droupadi Murmu led delegation-level talks with Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth of Mauritius when they reaffirmed their commitment to further deepen the long-standing partnership between the two countries.

The two leaders also witnessed the exchange of 4 agreements. These include

·        MoU between International Financial Services Centres Authority (GIFT City) and Financial Services Commission, Mauritius;

·        MoU between Public Service Commission, Mauritius and Union Public Service Commission;

·        Protocol to amend the India-Mauritius Double Tax Avoidance Agreement (DTAA) to make it compliant with Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Minimum Standards;

·        MoU between Central Bureau of Investigation, India and the Independent Commission Against Corruption of Mauritius.

On the occasion, President Murmu and Prime Minister Jugnauth virtually inaugurated 14 community development projects funded by the Government of India, and laid the foundation stone for the new Forensic Science Laboratory, also being set up with Indian assistance.

"Later, the President of Mauritius, Shri Prithvirajsing Roopun hosted the President over lunch at State House, Reduit," read a statement issued by the Indian President's Secretariat.

Earlier this morning, the President visited Aapravasi Ghat which holds great significance, especially for the descendants of the first indentured workers from India who arrived there nearly two centuries ago. 

She also visited the International Slavery Museum.

Before leaving Mauritius, the President also offered prayers to Mangalmurti Mahadev at the sacred Ganga Talao.

On 12 March 2024, the President participated as Chief Guest in the National Day celebrations of Mauritius. Following the ceremony, various Mauritian dignitaries called on President Murmu.
