NEW DELHI: PM Narendra Modi and his Mauritius counterpart Pravind Jugnauth will jointly inaugurate the new Supreme Court building of Mauritius on Thursday, the government announced in a statement.
The inauguration is scheduled to take place through video-conference in presence of senior members of judiciary from Mauritius and other dignitaries from both the countries.
“The building has been constructed with Indian grant assistance and will be the first India assisted infrastructure project within the capital city of Port Louis,” said the government.
India in recent times has emerged as one of the largest trading partners and exporter of goods and services to the strategically located country in the Indian Ocean.
The government said the successful and timely completion of India assisted “high quality infrastructure projects” in Mauritius will also create greater opportunities for Indian companies in Mauritius and in the region.
“The new Supreme Court Building will be an important landmark in the city center symbolising the strong bilateral partnership between the two countries,” it said, adding that the project had been completed in time and below expected costs.
