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.
