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.


Preface by Mr Rintaro Tamaki, Deputy Secretary-General, OECD

Mauritius is one of the most competitive and successful economies in Africa, with levels of income and of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) per capita which are among the highest in the continent. The Mauritian economy is also one of the most open to foreign ownership worldwide, and relies on political stability, strong rule of law and regulatory efficiency. It has successfully rebounded following shocks exerted by the global financial crisis as well as the economic slowdown of the Eurozone, the main destination market for Mauritian exports. In 2012, performance has been particularly promising in the financial services, ICT and seafood sectors, which are expected to attract further investment (both domestic and foreign) in coming years.
