Mauritius will sign a bilateral agreement with South Korea with the aim to attracting more Korean tourists to Mauritius, announced the Attorney General and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Regional Integration and International Trade, Mr. Maneesh Gobin.
The statement was made following the South Korean Ambassador, Mr. Son Yong-ho’s call on Minister Gobin, this morning, in Port Louis. The courtesy call was followed by a ceremony of donation of Samsung office equipment by the Republic of Korea to the Ministry.
In his address, Minister Gobin stated that the meeting was an opportunity for both nations to reaffirm their commitment to maintaining robust bilateral relations. He stressed on the excellent relations between the two countries, while highlighting the crucial role of ‘people-to-people relations’ in forging deeper connections.
The Minister expressed his wish to have a full-fledged ambassador of South Korea in Mauritius and invited Ambassador Yong-ho whose official residence is Madagascar to spend some time in Mauritius so as to experience the Mauritian hospitality. Mr Gobin also expressed heartfelt gratitude to the Republic of Korea for its generous donation.
Ambassador Yong-ho, for his part, explained that the donation by the Republic of Korea will assist employees of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to better perform their job. He also commented on the forthcoming bilateral agreement between the two countries aiming to attract more Korean tourists to Mauritius which, he added, is perceived as a honeymoon destination.
