" That's the question that arises from Agence France-Presse (AFP) in a report of one minute and 53 seconds, posting online and dedicated to developing tourism in the country. According to the article accompanying the video, "a study of the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA) shows that the island is no longer perceived as an exclusive destination and it is not preserved."
The documentary in question begins with the traditional image of Mauritius on the public beach. This could, according to AFP, dwindle while the hotel construction continues along the coast of Mauritius. French journalists have questioned the oceanographer Vassen Kauppaymootoo about it. "This causes many problems locally. Public beaches are very important to the Mauritian population. They are the only places of recreation for free , "he adds.
Second speaker of this documentary, the social worker-Georges Ah Yan campaigning for the preservation of public beaches. "It would be quiet on the beach and not with hotels and restaurants that we perturb around us," says it. Finally, the AFP journalists have questioned the president of the Beach Authority, Anand Nunkoo, explains that unlike other countries, Mauritius has no natural resources like oil.
