Cooperation China Mauritius

Cabinet has taken note that, consequent to the visit of the Prime Minister to the People’s Republic of China in July 2007, HE Mr Lu Zushan, Governor of the Province of Zhejiang, would visit Mauritius in October 2008 to explore possible areas of cooperation between Mauritius and the Province of Zhejiang in the fields of textile, maritime transport, aquaculture and tourism. As a coastal province, Zhejiang is a centre of aquaculture in China and has important commercial ports. Its manufacturing sector is based on electro-mechanical and chemical industries, textiles and construction materials. Following its own development model, Zhejiang has become one of the richest provinces of China.
