Jugnauth also pledged to introduce a comprehensive plan to recycle wastes that are currently being dumped and burnt at landfills.

On implentation, the recycling capacity could attain 70% by 2030.

His administration also intends to popularise electric vehicles through the implementation of new government-backed incentives.
