Mauritius secures the top spot as Africa`s best country for attracting talents

The 2017 Global Talent Competitiveness Index released by international business school INSEAD, ranks Mauritius 46 out of 118 countries, with regard to factors such as the regulatory landscape, business environment, education, sustainability and use of technology. Switzerland, Singapore, UK, US and Sweden occupy the top 5 places.

Mauritius leads Sub-Saharan Africa followed by three other upper-middle income countries of this group, namely Botswana (63rd), South Africa (67th), and Namibia (76th).  Mauritius scores 49.15 and is above the median GTCI score, supported by a solid Enable pillar (35th) and the Regulatory Landscape of the country which is particularly good (26th).

The index measures the extent to which countries attract, grow and retain talents and how they translate their efforts into output.

This year’s GTCI analyses how technology can indeed ‘augment’ human efficiency.  It states that the digital revolution has been unfolding for decades—its impact on business and society has been visibly accelerating since the start of the new millennium.
