Mauritius: The renewal of the Protocol on Cooperation between the Supreme Council of Notaries of France and the Association des notaires de Maurice was signed yesterday during a ceremony held in the presence of the Ambassador of the Republic of France to the Mauritius, Mrs Florence Caussé-Tissier, in Port-Louis.
In her address, Mrs Florence Caussé-Tissier said that the partnership is a testimony of the good relations that the Republic of France and the Mauritius share and showcases the diversity of their bilateral relations. She rejoiced that both countries are collaborating in this field which she emphasised will enhance shared knowledge.
Furthermore, the French Ambassador highlighted that both parties are aligned with issues that are relevant to the realities of the modern world.
As for the Solicitor-General of the Republic of Mauritius, Mr Rajeshsharma Ramloll, he dwelt on the projects that will be facilitated through the partnership being undertaken with the Supreme Council of Notaries of France. The renewal of the existing cooperation, he said, demonstrates the good relations that exist between the two parties.
Besides, the Solicitor-General reiterated the support of the Attorney General’s Office to the community of professional notaries while adding that the Office will continue to work for the interest of the Judiciary.
The Protocol on Cooperation will be valid for another two years, and a bilateral meeting between both parties will be organised on an annual basis. The existing Protocol on Cooperation catered for professional training, the digitalisation of offices of notaries, and the remote transmission of data between offices of notaries, amongst others.
The new Protocol on Cooperation aims at concretising the dematerialisation project, providing the means to have recourse to electronic signatures, allowing the use of electronic legislative documents and introducing the possibility of practising the profession of Notary within civil and professional companies of Mauritius.
