President Hu Jintao in Mauritius on 24 hour Visit.

The honorable President of the People's republic of China, his excellency Mr. Hu Jintao is finally in Mauritius. The much awaited visit of the president which brings hope of developpement for the small island of Mauritius which is the door of africa for China.

The Chinese President has many big subjects of discussion on his 24 hours agenda here:
  • tianli & construction projects.
  • further loans / credit agreements.
  • Reinforcement of sino-mauritian relationships.
The Chateau du Reduit has been been nicely dressed into chinese :)) for the visit of his excellency, the President of the People's Republic of China.

Very nice and positive vibrations around Mauritius today, with the visit of his excellency to Mauritius, which is something very big and the Mauritians are experiencing a sensation of unknown. They don't know if it is a good thing for the country or a bad thing. However, since the "Mauritian" is more or less of a positive attitude, he is expecting a lot from the visit of such an important guest to our dot-like country on the World Map!.

The Prime Minister of Mauritius greeted the President of the People's Republic of China at the Sir Seewosagur Ramgoolam International Airport today, 16 February 2009 at 15h55.

Mauritius was in a quasi-quarantined state by evening !! As shown on the pictures below, however, most roads were open but the Mauritians, after a busy morning in the heat and scorching sun preferred stay in their cosy homes.
The regions of reduit / quatre bornes / trianon / palma were like under quarantine!! lolzz..

The chinese and sino-mauriciens were not going to miss such a great opportunity of seeing their president, knowing that in china, they are 1 in 1000 millions, and here only 1 in a million , they had a much more likely chance of seeing him, some of who even got the chance to shake his hand.

Tomorow, Mauritius will again be waiting eagerly what the chinese President has for us, and will again be kept under quarantine for some more hours :)

    he wants to give us money for developpement, we cannot refuse such nice help by those harsh times, soo, we are happy to accept !! ..

  5. Mauritius has been greatly honoured to have the visit of his Excellency Mr Hu Jintao, President of a new superpower, China, by now the third largest economy in the world. While the USA, UK, France etc are almost bankrupt, China enjoys enormous foreign exchange reserves and is well placed to offer assistance to fellow developing countries. While European countries have turned their back on Africa, Mauritius and the ACP countries, we are very fortunate to be able to count on the assistance of another developing country, China.

    Since the end of the Opium Wars, colonial oppression, and the establishment of the People’s Republic, China has made great strives towards improving human rights among its citizens – the right to education, health care, housing, employment, gender equality, the right to a decent standard of living. Only those prejudiced minds bent on China-bashing will fail to acknowledge the huge and considerable progress made in tacking the problems of squalor and poverty. Of course, much remains to be achieved, but then Rome was not build in one day and the government is doing its very best to tackle the problems faced by this huge country of more than 1.3 billion people. China, like all developing countries, faces huge problems and anyone who has actually been to China cannot fail to be impressed by the considerable progress made. Much also remains to be done in the field of education, in increasing the size of the new middle class, so that, eventually, when the time is right, the population is able to take wise decisions in the interest of the country. Such a process has taken centuries in Europe, decades in the new industrialised countries of Asia. China, for its part, is very lucky to be well governed and has avoided the extreme poverty and turmoil which one finds very often closer to our shores.

    Chinese assistance to Mauritius has been considerable – social housing, airport infrastructure, sport stadium, technical assistance, cultural exchanges, tertiary education etc. The availability of affordable Chinese products have also made it possible for ordinary people to equip their homes with TV sets, DVD players, microwave ovens, mobile phones, air conditioners, refrigerators, washing machines, kitchen appliances, etc thus considerably improving the standard of living in Mauritius. With its increasing stature on the world stage, China is even better placed to offer assistance to other developing countries such as Mauritius.

    Contrary to what some people think, Mauritius is very privileged and fortunate to have many communities living within its shores, each preserving its language, culture and traditions and thus enriching everybody in the process. Just as the presence of an Indian community and emotional ties with India has made it easier to obtain financial assistance from India in order to create a Cybercity, as well as other assistance in the offshore sector, the presence of a Chinese community in Mauritius has smooth the road for entrepreneurs from the Far East to invest in Mauritius, thus speeding up the industrialisation of the island. Mauritius, a country with no natural resources, has been blessed with a diverse population consisting of many communities and in this century, as we see the centre of gravity of the world move from West to East, the diversity of the Mauritian population is a tremendous advantage when seeking assistance and partnerships from the new superpowers in the East.

    Thank you for your visit, your Excellency Mr Hu Jintao. Thank you for taking the time to assist us, particularly at a time when we face so many problems from the demise of our sugar industry and the loss of preferential treatment from the European Union. Thank you for assisting us in restructuring our economy and in building our infrastructure. Thank you for noticing our small island nation. Long live the friendship and partnership between China and Mauritius.
