International Economics, in consortium with AESA, supports Mauritius’ Economic Development Board (EDB) with the implementation of the interim Economic Partnership Agreement (iEPA) by improving the business and investment climate. The team is in charge of: i) making an appraisal of the present general business climate and propose recommendations in view of transitioning the country from a middle-income to a high-income economy; ii) reviewing the regulatory framework for 4 specific sectors (trade & logistics, construction, tourism and healthcare); and iii) creating a Single Licensing Agency (SLA). The project also includes capacity building activities such as skills needs assessment, change management, trainings and workshops.
