Mauritius Prime Minister Pravind Kumar Jugnauth, accompanied by a high-level delegation and his spouse Kobita Jugnauth, arrived in Rajkot of Gujarat on Monday as part of his eight-day visit to India.

The Mauritius Premier is arriving in India at the invitation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"Glad to receive Honourable PM of Mauritius Pravind Kumar Jugnauth at Rajkot. Extended heartiest welcome for his visit to Gujarat where he will be taking part in important programmes that will further strengthen ties between maritime neighbours," Minister of AYUSH, Sarbananda Sonowal, said in a tweet.

Tomorrow, Jugnauth will participate in the groundbreaking ceremony of the WHO-Global Centre for Traditional Medicine in Jamnagar.

According to the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), Jugnauth will also participate in the Global Ayush Investment and Innovation Summit in Gandhinagar on Wednesday, along with PM Modi.

The Mauritius PM will also pay a visit to Varanasi apart from his official engagements in Gujarat and New Delhi.

"India and Mauritius enjoy uniquely close ties, bound by shared history, culture, and heritage. The upcoming visit will further strengthen the vibrant bilateral ties," MEA said.

Last week, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar met Secretary to the Cabinet of Mauritius NK Ballah in New Delhi and said the bilateral cooperation between the two countries was "progressing from strength to strength".

Earlier in January, PM Modi and Prime Minister of Mauritius Pravind Kumar Jugnauth had jointly inaugurated the India-assisted social housing units project in Mauritius virtually. They also launched the Civil Service College and 8 MW Solar PV Farm project in Mauritius that is being undertaken under India's development support. (ANI)
