  • Description

    Mauritian Prime Minister Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam, last week (9 August), signed a 13.5 million pounds sterling loan agreement with The People's Republic of China. Representing China at the Port Louis signing was Mr. Hu Chung-jui, Charge d'Affaires.

    The loan will be interest-free and repayable after a moratorium of 15 years. Sir Seewoosagur said the loan was the largest ever received by Mauritius, and projects to be financed with it would be discussed later by the two countries.

    It is understood, however, that agreement has already been reached for the financing of a new international airport and a highway linking it with Port Louis.
