Mauritius and Australia are gearing efforts towards further building and consolidating the existing ties between the two countries as well as reinforcing the people to people relationship.

This was at the fore of discussions during a courtesy call by the Speaker of the House of Representatives Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia, Mr Tony Smith, on the Prime Minister, Minister of Home Affairs, External Communications and National Development Unit and Minister of Finance and Economic Development, Mr Pravind Kumar Jugnauth, on 12 January 2018 at the New Treasury Building in Port Louis.
