External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Tuesday inaugurated a new chancery building of the Indian High Commission in Mauritius and reviewed over 950 housing units built with Indian support in the country.
Jaishankar inaugurated the new Chancery-cum-Residence building of the High Commission of India in Ebene in the presence of Mauritius Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth and Foreign Minister Alan Ganoo, the Indian High Commission in Mauritius said.
”An exemplary cooperation. Reviewed the Dagotière Social Housing Project, accompanied by DPM & Housing Minister Louis Steven Obeegadoo. Delighted that the 956 Housing Units, built with Indian support, will be occupied soon. Thank our workers who have done India proud,” Jaishankar said in a tweet.
Indian-origin people constitute nearly 70 per cent of the population of Mauritius. Their ancestors were sent there as indentured labourers during British rule.
