The projects have come up in Mauritius under India's development support

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Prime Minister of Mauritius Pravind Kumar Jugnauth will jointly inaugurate the India-assisted Social Housing Units project in Mauritius on Thursday.

During the event, to be held virtually, the two leaders will also launch the Civil Service College and 8MW Solar PV Farm projects in Mauritius that are being undertaken under India’s development support, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said on Wednesday.

In addition to this, the event will see an Agreement on extending a US$ 190 mn Line of Credit (LoC) from India to Mauritius for the Metro Express Project and other infrastructure projects.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on the implementation of Small Development Projects will also be exchanged, the MEA added.

India has extended several Lines of Credit (LoC) to Mauritius to assist in the development of infrastructure, human resources, skill development, capacity building and project appraisal.

The Metro Express was jointly inaugurated by PM Jugnauth and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2019.

It is a flagship project built through an Indian Special Economic Package, with a grant assistance of US$353 for 5 projects in Mauritius.

Other projects under this included a new Supreme Court building and the Social Housing project.
