The Sixth Regional Pravasi Bharatiya Divas (PBD) Convention – Mauritius, October 27-28, 2012
The sixth Regional Pravasi Bharatiya Divas (PBD) Convention will be held in Mauritius on October 27-28, 2012. Regional PBDs are organized by the Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs, in collaboration with the host Government, the concerned Indian Mission and organizations catering to the needs of the Indian diaspora. They serve the objective of reaching out to a vast majority of Indian diaspora, who for various reasons, are unable to attend the main PBD event in India and benefit from its deliberations.
2. PBD Mauritius 2012 will focus on a particular theme that stresses the ever-increasing strands of connectivity between India and its diaspora. Seminars and breakaway sessions/discussions on various issues of relevance to the Indian diaspora like youth participation, education, tourism, investment, culture etc. are planned during the Convention. Besides, a Business Event comprising sessions aimed at enhancing business ties between the Indian diaspora and India is an integral part of every regional PBD.
3. The delegates will be required to register for the convention by paying a registration fee of US Dollars One Hundred. Details regarding the convention are available on the dedicated website http://pbdmauritius.org as well as on the website of Indian High Commission in Mauritius - http://indiahighcom-mauritius.org/.
