Mauritius at a Glance
Over the years, Mauritius has crafted a strong growth-oriented developmental path which has enabled us to achieve one of the highest per capita income of Africa. Indeed, from USD 400 in 1968 when we obtained our independence, our development strategy has put us at the brink of becoming a high-income economy with a per capita income of around USD 10,000 today. Leveraging on its geographic strategic location and impressive economic trajectory, Mauritius has successfully positioned itself as a regional hub.
Today, Mauritius is a well-established business destination for investors seeking a secure investment climate, a conducive business environment, political stability, transparent regulations, high value-addition and an efficient financial ecosystem offering a plethora of services. As an innovation-driven and knowledge-based economy, Mauritius is underpinned by a broad spectrum of sectors which offers a number of excellent business opportunities in numerous fields: agro-industry, aqua-culture and ocean economy, education, financial services, healthcare, hospitality, property development and smart cities, ICT-BPO, life sciences, logistics, manufacturing, media and creative industries, amongst others.
