The Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Mauritius and to the Republic of Seychelles exists since 1976. The Delegation is also responsible for relations with the Indian Ocean Commission. The role of the Delegation is detailed in this website.

This site intends to provide the public - in the Indian Ocean countries and other countries throughout the world - with brief but concise information on the relationship and cooperation that exists between the European Union and Mauritius, Seychelles and the Indian Ocean Commision. While the Delegation’s site is certainly the first place to look for information about specific matters pertaining to EU-Indian Ocean, please note that a wealth of broader information can be found on the Europa website. Europa maintains the EU’s chief internet presence in a variety of EU languages and is frequently updated. Moreover, colleagues at the Delegation are always keen to provide any additional information and/or clarification needed.

Thank you for visiting our site. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any comments or questions. Your feedback will be very much appreciated as we constantly strive to improve our services.
