On November 4, the Vice Minister of Commerce Qian Keming jointly presided over the 10th China-Mauritius Joint Committee of Economics and Trade with the Minister of Finance and Economic Development of Mauritius Pravind Kumar Jugnauth. After the meeting, both sides jointly signed the MOU of starting the joint feasibility research on China-Mauritius free trade agreement and announced to officially launch the joint feasibility research on the bilateral free trade agreement. Both sides agreed to carry out comprehensive studies on the fields about which they both are concerned as soon as possible.

The joint feasibility research on the free trade agreement between China and Mauritius is the joint feasibility research on the free trade agreement carried out between China and African regions. In recent year, the China-Mauritius trade and economic cooperation has obtained obvious achievements. China is the second largest trade partner of Mauritius and its biggest source country of import. Investment has become the most potential field of the bilateral trade and economic cooperation. Discussing the cooperation in the free trade area is conducive to further expanding the bilateral trade and investment exchanges and injecting new vigor into the trade and economic relationship between the two countries.
