Mauritius praises Bangladesh’s socio-economic transformation

Deputy Prime Minister of Mauritius Louis Steven Obeegadoo has described Bangladesh as a shining example of development and noted “miraculous progress” that Bangladesh achieved in the socio-economic sector over the last one decade.

Obeegadoo praised Bangladesh and its growth when Foreign Secretary (Senior Secretary) Masud Bin Momen paid a courtesy call on the Deputy Prime Minister at his office in Port Louis, Mauritius on Tuesday.

The Deputy Prime Minister commented that the people of his generation get inspiration from Bangladesh’s Liberation War.

He expressed satisfaction at the way Bangladesh handled the Covid-19 situation to protect its people and bring back the economy on the right track.

Obeegadoo highlighted the need for signing of an MoU on tourism cooperation between the two countries.

His government is ready to sign the instrument during the visit of Bangladesh´s Foreign Minister to Mauritius this year, he said.

Obeegadoo underlined that tourism is the lifeline of the Mauritian economy which was badly hit due to Covid-19 pandemic.

Foreign Secretary Masud replied that visa processing must be made easier in order to promote tourism.
