Air, sea upgrades in Mauritius


Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has secured agreements to develop islands in Mauritius and Seychelles, according to reports by Reuters news service. Modi toured Mauritius in mid-March and signed an agreement with local officials to upgrade sea and air links on the remote Agalega islands.

The North Agalega island has a rough air strip which would likely be upgraded under the agreement, a former Indian navy pilot told the news service.

Modi also announced an agreement with Seychelles to develop infrastructure on Assumption island.

The agreements are an effort by India to remain globally competitive in a region where China has been investing millions in recent years.
