On Monday 12 October a Cooperation Agreement was finalised between the Republic of Mauritius and the Sovereign Order of Malta, signed by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Regional Integration and International Trade of Mauritius, Arvin Boolell, and the Grand Chancellor of the Sovereign Order of Malta, Jean-Pierre Mazery.

During his visit, the Grand Chancellor was received by the President of the Republic of Mauritius Kailash Purryag, by the Prime Minister Navinchandra Ramgoolam and by the Minister of Health Lormus Bundhoo.

The Cooperation Agreement signifies that the Sovereign Order of Malta can continue its work on the island – with which it has enjoyed diplomatic relations since 1977 – offering relief and assistance to vulnerable and disadvantaged groups, and in particular training first-aid personnel in the region.
