The Mauritius Advantage
Situated in a strategic location in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius possesses unique geographical coordinates that make it an ideal gateway between Asia and Africa. As a result, promoting investments into Africa is one of the key areas of focus for the Mauritius International Financial Centre (MIFC).
Over the past decade, Mauritius has established a strong reputation as a premier International Financial Centre with several advantages that make it an attractive investment springboard. Equipped with a highly skilled and competent workforce, a robust and stable regulatory framework, and other advantageous factors, Mauritius is positioned as an International Financial Centre of choice for providing top-notch financial services and investment structures regionally and globally. Despite a history of economic reliance on sugarcane monoculture, Mauritius has transformed into a diversified economy comprising agriculture, textile manufacturing, global businesses, financial services, and FinTech.
This economic re-invention has led to continuous pursuit of local and foreign investment, know-how, and foreign talents to the island’s shores. Over the years, Mauritius has implemented reforms to enhance its legal and regulatory framework and maintain its status as an International Financial Centre (IFC).
To ensure Mauritius remains a viable investment destination, building resilience and responding effectively to international demands in the areas of anti-money laundering and combatting the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) are integral parts of the island’s development strategy. Recently white-listed by the FATF, Mauritius has successfully navigated through its darkest times and is now poised to further develop its thriving sectors.
