Mauritius: Your Strategic Regional Partner for Trade and Investment
Located just above the Tropic of Capricorn and on the eastern coast of Madagascar, the island of Mauritius is known for its fusion of cultures, exotic cuisines and beguiling green and peaceful environment. Since its independence in 1968, the Mauritian economy has diversified from a mono-crop sugar cultivation to a well-diversified agro-economy comprising of a wide range of agro products such as special sugars, fish, spices & herbs, canned food, speciality ethnic foods such as fruit pickles, a spectrum of pre-cooked snacks, bakery products and pasta amongst others. In line with its adherence to satisfy its trade markets, the products are manufactured under international quality and norms and are HACCP certified.
The Economic Development Board of Mauritius will lead a delegation of 8 operators at this year’s edition of Gulfood, who will be offering a unique opportunity to feast on the rich, melting pot of Mauritian cuisine and the taste of a tantalising mix of flavours. The staple dishes are based around rice and curries and utilize a range of spices brought to the island by the Dutch, the Indians, the English and the French.
Furthermore, a conducive & stable business environment, a sound political & financial jurisdiction and the ideal geographical proximity, makes Mauritius a safe trade and investment location. In addition to its extensive bilateral tax and investment treaties, Mauritius is party to a number of regional trading blocs, including SADC, COMESA, IOC as well as AGOA- USA, iEPA- EU, FTA-Turkey, PTA- Pakistan amongst others which makes the country an ideal platform for trade and investment.
