image of OECD Investment Policy Reviews: Mauritius 2014

This review illustrates the significant progress made by the government of Mauritius in improving its investment climate in recent years. It highlights major initiatives and specific policy measures undertaken, as well as areas that need further reforms to attract more and better investment, both domestic and foreign. While numerous policy advances have been achieved, this review identifies remaining challenges and policy options.



Executive summary

Government policy in Mauritius is firmly centred on promoting foreign and domestic investment. Once a mono-crop economy reliant on sugar, Mauritius is today an upper-middle income country with a diversified production base. In recent years, the government has been especially intent on attracting FDI from emerging economies. Mauritius has built a sound network of Investment Promotion and Protection Agreements, notably with other African countries. Its network of Double Taxation Treaties, political stability, robust banking system, pro-business environment, and good infrastructure, further add to the comparative advantage of Mauritius as an investment hub for FDI into Africa.
