Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said that he was more than satisfied after his meeting with Mauritian President Rajkeswur Purryag.
On the second leg of his three-nation tour, Modi called on Purryag soon after his arrival in Port Louis, reports India Today.
"I was pleased to offer a concessional line of credit of USD 500 million for civil infrastructure projects for Mauritius. We intend to quickly build the petroleum storage and bunkering facility in Mauritius," Prime Minister Modi said.
Earlier Modi became the first Indian prime minister to visit Seychelles in 33 years. The PM is on a trip to three Indian Ocean island nations and Mauritius is second on the list of his diplomatic tour which will conclude in Sri Lanka.
India signed five pacts with Mauritius and also offered $500 million concessional line of credit for key infrastructure projects, reports IANS.
The five agreements signed between the two countries included one to tap the rich marine resources of Mauritius.
Modi, who arrived here earlier in the day from Seychelles, said Jugnauth and he had "discussed our shared interests in a safe and secure Indian Ocean and a stable and prosperous Indian Ocean Region. We value the leadership by Mauritius in this area".
He noted that India and Mauritius have built a relationship of "matchless strength and character".
