The Memorandum of Understanding was renewed on 16th July by Patrice Cellario, Minister of the Interior, in the presence of Michel Gramaglia, Honorary Consul of Mauritius in Monaco, and a host of other dignitaries.

It continues a commitment between the Lycée Technique et Hôtelier de Monaco (LTHM) and the Hotel School Sir Gaëtan Duval of Mauritius, which provides that every year two Mauritian students are welcomed to train in the Principality, while two students in their first year at LTHM study for four months in Mauritius.

The protocol also provides for LTHM teachers to train Mauritian teachers as needed.

The bilateral agreement, which allows an important transfer of knowledge and skills between the two countries, has existed since 2004.

The Sir Gaetan Duval Hotel School has been placed under the High Patronage of S.A.S. Princess Stephanie since 2013.
