PM returns from Mauritius visit

April 02, 2005 19:55 IST

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday returned from a four-day official visit to Mauritius.

Dr Singh's visit, from March 30 to April 2, was mainly to inaugurate an 11-storeyed state-of-the-art Cyber Tower, which has been built with Indian assistance.

He also addressed the National Assembly and paid tribute at the Apravasi Ghat, which is a memorial for Indian indentured labourers who helped build that nation.

The PM held talks with his Mauritian counterpart Paul Berenger.

This was Dr Singh's first bilateral visit to a country after taking over as PM.
