About Mauritius

“Mauritius, a small island nation off the east coast of Africa, is neither particularly rich nor on its way to budgetary ruin. Nonetheless, it has spent the last decades successfully building a diverse economy, a democratic political system, and a strong social safety net. Many countries, not least the US, could learn from its experience.” ~Prof Joseph E. Stiglitz (American Professor in economics and 2001 Nobel Memorial Prize winner in Economic Sciences) quoted in his article “The Mauritius Miracle”.

The unprecedented socio-economic development with an economic growth averaging 5% for the past 20 years, the Republic of Mauritius, with a population of approximately 1.3 million inhabitants, has been able to nurture a sound business and financial infrastructure with a reputation for reliability and efficiency.
