The Mauritius Chamber of Agriculture is administered by a Bureau of seven members elected at the Annual General Meeting. The Bureau is at the core of the Chamberís activities and is composed of a President, two vice - presidents and four members.
The rules of the Chamber were amended in 1972 in order to increase the level of representation of planters, of plantersí associations and of non-sugar interests on the Bureau. Hence, it is agreed that three out of the seven Bureau seats are allotted to representatives of planters.
Tradition has it that former presidents are invited to attend Bureau meetings to ensure continuity in the administration of the Chamber. The Directors of sister-institutions are also invited to attend Bureau meetings in order to co-ordinate more effectively the actions of the sugar industry.
