more about Mauritius
Since independence, Mauritius has moved from a low-income, agricultural-based economy, to a middle-income economy. The major sectors that attract substantial global and local investment are tourism, textile, sugar, hospitality, seafood, healthcare and communication technology.
Despite some constraints, such as rapid population growth, over-dependence on sugar export and geographical location, Mauritius has one of the most striking economic development stories in Africa.
Mauritius has been ranked consecutively as the friendliest destination for doing business within the SADC zone and Africa as a whole.
The World Bank Report (2016) on doing business, ranked Mauritius 1st in Africa and 32nd in the world. The strategic combination of open trade policies, strong institutional framework, political stability, favourable regulatory environment and low corruption levels, are the main drivers of the economic success story.
