INDIA AND MAURITIUS TO STRENGTHEN NAVAL TIES
Thursday, January 22, 2015

NEWTOWN, Conn. - The prime minister of Mauritius has been meeting with the head of the Indian navy in Port Louis, the Mauritian capital, reports the Mauritius government. Prime Minister Anerood Jugnauth and Vice Prime Minister Showkutally Soodhun held talks on January 21 with an Indian delegation led by Adm. R.K. Dhowan.

Discussions between the two covered strengthening bilateral ties, especially in the area of hydrography. Mauritius requested Indian assistance and technical expertise to help the country develop its maritime resources, said officials.

The two nations have strong naval ties with one another. Last month, India's Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers (GRSE) have handed over to Mauritius a 1,300 ton offshore patrol vessel. The vessel is the first newly built warship to be exported by an Indian shipyard (India has sold used vessels to countries in the past and donated smaller naval vessels). Also, in May of last year Mauritius had ordered a 50 meter fast patrol vessel from India, as well as machineguns, ammunition, body armor and interceptor boats in a major re-equipment drive.

Meanwhile, the Indian navy has conducted 26 hydrographic surveys in Mauritian waters, producing seven navigation charts. The service is also providing training to Mauritian personnel at its hydrographic school.
