The Board of Investment conducts a targeted marketing campaign to enhance the visibility of Mauritius at MIPIM 2017
The Managing Director of the Board of Investment, Mr. Ken Poonoosamy, is leading a high-profile delegation of 30 stakeholders at the world’s premier property and development event, Le Marché International des Professionnels de l’Immobilier (MIPIM) 2017, from 14th to 17th March 2017 at Le Palais Des Festivals, in Cannes, France.
During this annual event, Mauritius will be promoted as a secure investment destination. The island’s flagship projects will be showcased. Strong strategic partnerships will be struck with a view to accelerating the emergence of Mauritius as a regional innovation platform. Against a backdrop of digital disruption in the real-estate market, new paradigms in the geopolitical landscape and socio-environmental priorities, a reviewed strategy is crucial for the Mauritius property market to thrive as world-class regional hub.
Over the last few years, MIPIM has provided an unrivalled platform for Mauritius to boost its visibility. MIPIM gathers the most influential international property players for four days of expert-led informative conferences, customized and intensive business networking, insights into the latest property trends and exhibitions showcasing and exploring major international development projects across all industry segments (offices, retail, industrial, residential and hospitality). It is also ideal for targeted one-to-one meetings, high-potential deal brokering, development of international business relations and idea generation through knowledge sharing with political leaders and key decision makers.
Mauritius has an overarching ambition to join the league of high-income economies by 2030. To translate this vision into reality, science, technology and innovation will be leveraged to drive economic growth and development. In pursuit of this endeavour, the Managing Director of the Board of Investment engaged in several targeted one-to-one meetings with world leaders in technological innovations, notably pioneers in Technopoles, Research labs and Medical Centre on 13th March 2017. In this context, Mr. Ken Poonosamy met with the following companies:
- Fondation Sophia Antipolis which created Europe’s first technopole and provides a stimulating platform for exchange and idea generation at the crossroads of innovation, research and culture.
- Accenture Technology Labs, the research and development arm for Accenture, focused on bringing innovations from emerging technologies to businesses around the world.
- Centre Medico Sportif Mouratoglou, the state-of-the-art medical sports center with ultra-modern medical and rehabilitation infrastructure.
The Mauritian delegation also had a working session with Team Côte D’Azur, the official investment promotion agency for Côte d’Azur. The agency was established by the Alpes-Maritimes Departmental Council, the Nice Côte d’Azur Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Métropole Nice Côte d’Azur. The main objective of Team Côte d’Azur is to promote investment on an international level.
