She recalled that Mauritius is a key partner of the AUF adding that the country has shown a keen interest to participate in a Conference organised by the AUF in Quebec, Canada, in October 2023. Ministers from various Francophone countries will have the opportunity to meet and discuss on tertiary education and reflect on future avenues of cooperation, she remarked.

Furthermore, Professor Sy-Wonyu commended Government’s efforts for transforming Mauritius into an education hub to welcome more foreign students from African countries. Students from African countries currently benefit from 50 scholarships and the AUF will continue to assist the country to attract more students, she informed.
