Mauritius

A Premier Investment Destination

 

The Mauritian Government’s objective to place Mauritius among the top ten most investment and business friendly locations in the world has led to a total makeover of the business and investment climate, making Mauritius a premier investment destination.

The country’s leadership has targeted the financial sector, creating a foundation for continuous and broad economic growth with Its nearly 40 Double Taxation Treaties (DTTs) and close to 40 Investment Promotion and Protection Agreements (IPPAs) with sub-Saharan jurisdictions.

Mauritius has developed a vast and solid network of preferential agreements across the globe. Investments originating in Mauritius have flowed to East Africa, Kenya, Mozambique and Nigeria and target a diverse range of industries such as hospitality, agribusiness, timber, mining and healthcare.

 

 

Many international organisations have scaled Mauritius on its business practices and the following has been the outcome:

INDEX GLOBAL RANK AFRICA RANK
World Bank Doing Business 2017 49 out of 190 countries 1st
