Mr Escure also dwelt on how the Republic of Mauritius is well internationalised through its constructive participation in areas of dialogue and regional cooperation. Moreover, the Ambassador pointed out that the Government has established close collaborations with the IOC and the IORA, whose headquarters are located in the country.

As members of the IOC and the IORA, the goal of the French chairmanship is to enlarge activities and make them more concrete so as to build a resilient post COVID-19 Indian Ocean, he concluded.
