On July 9-10, 2008, the 8th Session of the Seychelles-Mauritius Commission on Bilateral Cooperation (CBC) took place at the Government House, Port Louis, in Mauritius.

The Minister for Foreign Affairs of Seychelles Patrick Pillay was heading a 4-strong delegation.

The members of the 2 delegations held the meeeting in order to review the cooperation programme and discuss new avenues for future partnership between Seychelles and Mauritius. The issues under discussion were also regional matters sch as the Economic Partnership Agreement, COMESA Fund, Aid for Trade and the Regional Multidisciplinary Centre of Excellence – all these are the issues vitallyl important to the both Seychelles and Mauritius.

It is worth noting that the Commission on Bilateral Cooperation was established after the Agreement of Economic, Scientific and Technical Cooperation between Seychelles and Mauritius was signed in February 1991.
