I congratulate all those who have successfully completed the award course and I am sure that it will give the students immense benefits personally and to do their work in more creative ways. The MGI is a privileged partner in this development process and it has to contribute in this process to help to meet the new challenges. My ministry will continue to support them to find innovative and creative programmes to fulfil their mission. The fields of languages and cultures have vast potential for development and they must become a centre of excellence in the region. I am confident that the Languages Resource Centre will come with new programmes and projects and research, and make their contribution to making Mauritius, a knowledge hub. I wish them all full success in their endeavours.
