In his reply, the Minister of Blue Economy explained the various stages of the Mauritius Shipping Corporation Limited’s attempt to charter a cargo ship to replace the Black Rhino, which is due for refurbishment. He explained that on a few occasions, the call for expressions of interest proved unsuccessful. Nevertheless, Minister Maudhoo said that negotiations were successful in retaining the MV Douro for two months at US$12,500 per day. The Minister gave assurances that there will be no disruption in the supply of goods to Rodrigues.
