About Mauritius

Mauritius offers a unique blend of advantages, which make it a preferred destination for a principal home base. With political stability, Mauritius is a melting pot of world civilisations, a blend of peoples of Indian, Chinese, African and European descent. It prides itself on a uniquely rich culture embedded in a web of values and traditions. The great majority of its people are multilingual, being proficient in both English and French while mastering a third language such as Hindi, in addition to the local vernacular Creole.

Mauritius is a multiparty democracy modeled on the British parliamentary system. The separation of the legislative, the executive and the judiciary is enshrined in the Constitution. The legal system is a composite of English laws and the French Code Napoleon. The highest Court of Appeal is the British Privy Council.

Over the last three decades, the island has experienced stable economic development and growth. It has emerged as a diversified economy resting on four main sectors: agriculture, export processing industries, tour- ism and financial services. The information and communication technology sector is now being developed as a fifth sector.

State-of-the-art physical infrastructure, comfortable foreign exchange reserves, a highly-educated and productive workforce, and a robust and diversified economy make the island a desirable place for business.
