Mauritius' National Day


Washington, DC — On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I congratulate the people of Mauritius as you celebrate the 48th anniversary of independence on March 12.

The country's political stability and history of transparent transitions of power have enabled Mauritius to advance economically and improve the standard of living of its citizens.
