Modi will take part in the virtual event with Ramkalawan on Thursday to inaugurate a range of Indian projects in Seychelles, it added.

The new Magistrates’ Court building in the capital city, Victoria, is India”s first major civil infrastructure project in Seychelles built with grant assistance.

The Magistrates’ Court is a state-of-the-art building that will substantially enhance the capacity of Seychelles’ judicial system and aid in better delivery of judicial services to people, the PMO said.

The 50-metre Fast Patrol Vessel, which is a modern and fully-equipped naval ship, has been made in India by M/s GRSE, Kolkata and is being gifted to Seychelles under Indian grant assistance to strengthen its maritime surveillance capabilities, it added.

The 1-MW ground-mounted solar power plant at the Romainville Island of Seychelles has been completed as part of the “Solar PV Democratisation Project” being implemented in Seychelles by the Indian government under grant assistance.

The virtual event will also see the handing over of 10 HICDPs implemented by the High Commission of India in collaboration with local bodies, educational and vocational institutions.

Seychelles occupies a central place in the prime minister’s vision of “SAGAR” — Security and Growth for All in the Region — the PMO said.

The inauguration of these key projects demonstrates India’s privileged and time-tested role as a reliable partner of Seychelles for meeting its infrastructural, developmental, and security requirements and is a testimony to the deep and friendly ties between the people of the two countries, it added.
