This Monday, October 31, six ministers will fly to China. Given that two of their colleagues are already abroad, that will make eight ministers who will be absent from the country this week.
The six ministers who will leave the country on Monday are Jugnauth, Fazila Jeewa-Daureeawoo, Prithviraj Roopun, Ashit Gungah, Soodesh Callichurn and Mahen Seeruttun. They will stay in China until November 10. For his part, the Deputy Prime Minister Xavier-Luc Duval is in England since last week for medical tests.
Also since the last week, the Minister of Foreign Affairs Vishnu Lutchmeenaraidoo traveled in Bali, Indonesia, for a conference on the Indian Ocean Rim. He will return to the country at the end of this week.
By cons, Prime Minister Sir Anerood Jugnauth will leave the country on November 9 for a mission and a private visit to India. Therefore, he could miss the parliamentary session of November 15. At that time, Xavier-Luc Duval will already be back to the country.
