President Ram Nath Kovind unveils the Foundation Stone of World Hindi Secretariat, at Port Louis, in Mauritius.

President Ram Nath Kovind on Tuesday described Hindi as a 'global language' and lauded the important role played by it in binding society and culture in both India and Mauritius. 

'It is a global language and the Indian community, spread across the world, has preserved its culture and traditions – and passed it to the next generation – through its linguistic traditions, including Hindi. Hindi is being taught in about 175 universities in various countries,' he said speaking after inaugurating the World Hindi Secretariat building on the third day of his visit to Mauritius.

He also launched the World Hindi Secretariat's logo, an Early Digital Learning Programme as well unveiled foundation stones of a social housing project and a large ENT hospital being built with Indian assistance. 

Referring to the 11th World Hindi Conference, which is scheduled to be held in Mauritius in August 2018, Kovind said that apart from India, Mauritius was the only country where this conference was being hosted for the third time and was evidence of the affection of the people of Mauritius for Hindi.  (UNI)
