Chinese Diaspora to meet in Mauritius

Port-Louis- Mauritius (PANA) -- The 10th world conference of the Chinese would be hosted 13-15 September by the Federation of Chinese Community Societies in Mauritius in Reduit, 20 km south of Port-Louis, organisers said Thursday in the Mauritian capital.
Organising committee official Harold Chan Lam said an exhibition on the history of Chinese immigrants, based on the Mauritian experience, would be the major attraction of the event.
It would also include speeches by personalities from China and elsewhere and debates on education, culture, Chinese migration, trade and investment.
The first Conference of the Chinese Diaspora was held in 1992 in Mauritius, where about 5 percent of the population are of Chinese descent.
