Over the past 25 years, Mauritius has successfully shaped itself into an increasingly attractive destination for financial services, a sector contributing 10.3% to a GDP of $10.49bn. The country harbours a favourable investment climate and is well-recognised for its exceptional political and social stability, sustained economic growth and well-regulated financial sector. The workforce in Mauritius is comprised of a large and expanding pool of highly qualified and bilingual professionals available at unmatchable costs.
Mauritius offers considerable economic and fiscal incentives to foreign investors and has built a strong reputation for investor protection and security, having been chosen as a secure location for investments during recent turbulent financial times. There are currently 28 Investment Promotion and Protection Agreements (IPPAs) concluded between Mauritius and partner countries in Africa, Europe, Asia Pacific and the Middle East, with many more in the process of being ratified.
