The Committee established under the EFTA-Mauritius Joint Declaration on Cooperation (JDC) held its second meeting on 22 July 2016 in Port Louis, Mauritius.
The Joint Committee reviewed developments in bilateral trade and investment flows, exchanged information on activities in the field of preferential trade agreements and discussed potential areas for closer cooperation.
Ambassador Martin Eyjólfsson, Permanent Representative, Permanent Missions of Iceland in Geneva, acted as the EFTA spokesperson, while Mr N. Boodhoo, Acting Director, Trade Policy Unit, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Regional Integration and International Trade, led the Mauritian delegation.
The JDC between the EFTA States and Mauritius was signed in June 2009. In 2015, EFTA-Mauritius merchandise trade (imports and exports) amounted to USD 108 million, which indicates a steady increase over the past few years.
