HE Mr. Sun stated that the embassy will extend all necessary support to further deepen the relationship between the two business organizations.


On his part, Mr. Barlen Pillay expressed his satisfaction on the increased interest from Chinese operators to consider Mauritius as a business-friendly venue and a dynamic platform to undertake business in Africa. He underlined the strong network MCCI has developed over the years with African private sector organisations which include the SADC Business Forum and the COMESA Business Council which is chaired by the MCCI President, Mr. Marday Venkatsamy. He invited Chinese operators to have recourse to MCCI business facilitation services.
