Newsletter August 2017 - Improving our productive capacity

Dear Investors,

After almost a decade of erratic progress in the wake of the 2007/08 economic debacle, the global economy seems to be reconnecting with a mode of relatively sustainable growth.

Mauritius National Budget Highlights 2017/2018

Dear Investors,

I am pleased to introduce the special edition of the Board of Investment’s newsletter focused on the 2017/18 Budget presented this afternoon by Honourable Pravind Kumar Jugnauth, Prime Minister and Minister of Finance and Economic Development.

The measures enunciated are grafted on those announced in last year’s budget, reflecting a continuation of the Government’s vision to ward off the middle-income trap through sustainable actions aimed at improving our productive capacity.

There are key recurring themes that will support and accelerate the transition of the Mauritian economy to one driven by efficiency and innovation, allowing us to further build our resilience against global uncertainties and impulsive movements of markets. They also purport a clear sense of direction that will position Mauritius as an economy of the future through the creation of a dynamic ecosystem for innovation-based activities.

Newsletter May 2017 - Review of the Business Facilitation Act 2017

Dear Valued Investors,

Just over a decade ago, the Business Facilitation Act 2006 triggered a period of sustained economic growth following bold reforms in the business environment. These reforms resulted in the streamlining of administrative processes through the subsequent Finance Act and the Economic and Financial Measures (Miscellaneous. Provisions) Act.

However, concurrently, other economies, in particular emerging Eastern European and Scandinavian countries, were constantly devising new ways to further improve their offerings and secure their global competitive edge by leveraging their lead in terms of technology and other initiatives.

Newsletter April 2017- Biotechnology, an emerging sector

EDITORIAL

Dear Valued Investors,

Foreign direct investment figures released by the Bank of Mauritius for 2016 show an increase of 41 % compared to the previous year’s inflows. In fact, FDI reached MUR 13.6 billion.

This upward performance reflects the change in BOI’s approach with regard to investment promotion and facilitation. It is the result of the restructuring of the organisation’s business clusters which stemmed from a need for constant reinvention in the wake of the persistent volatility and unpredictability of global business. We have set up a strategic watch to anticipate and monitor global trends, for success lies in a continual realignment of our business moves with global shifts and swings in order to maintain our competitiveness, while capitalizing on emerging sectors.

Newsletter February 2017 - Pursuing the Africa Strategy

EDITORIAL

Dear Valued Investors,

Africa’s transformation, rather its evolution, from a continent ridden with internal deficiencies to a seedbed for investments has been remarkable. A few decades ago, this progress would have been deemed impossible. But the determination and the force of character of the Africans decided otherwise.
