The island economy of Singapore has offered its expertise to Mauritius in priority areas in line with the philosophy of the Singaporean Government to support small states.
In this context, the Non-Resident High Commissioner of Singapore, R Jayachandran, visited the Mauritius Prime Minister Anerood Jugnauth yesterday at the Treasury Building in Port Louis.
Singapore is already assisting the Mauritian Government in several fields such as the water sector, the Information Communication and Technology sector as well as in the prisons services, among others.
During this meeting, Jayachandran evoked the possibility of implementing joint initiatives for further cooperation and bilateral relationship between Singapore and Mauritius.
The Non-Resident High Commissioner also recalled a number of projects in potential areas that are already in the pipeline, for which both parties are awaiting the outcomes and the progress achieved so far.
Follow-up meetings will be held to supplement this high-level meeting in the Treasury Building. The objective of this cooperation is to propel the relation between Mauritius and Singapore to new heights in a whole range of domains. The current exchanges concerned essentially the domain of expertise sought to be imparted and the degree of economic cooperation expected.
Singapore is a powerful economic locomotive in the southeast of Asia as an exceedingly prosperous and modern city-state with the best business climate in the world, according to the World Bank.
R. Jayachandran is Singapore’s Non-Resident High Commissioner to Mauritius. He is also currently the Non-Executive Chairman of Olam International Ltd, Non-Executive Director of Kewalram Singapore Ltd, Executive Chairman of Aquarius Investment Advisors Pte Ltd and one of the Founders and a Director of Redington Group of Companies.
