Mauritius National Export Strategy

The Project at A Glance

Mauritius has experienced three decades of remarkable economic growth that have been led by a combination of a favourable business, trade, and investment environment, and a mix of conducive economic policies, governance reforms, and an inclusive social system. However, growth in the last decade has been manifestly erratic.
International Economics, through its CEO, supported the inception phase of the National Export Strategy (NES) and contributed to the elaboration of the NES Strategic Development Road Map.

What We Found

Mauritius’ growth model has gained widespread and universal commentary and praise. Despite the impressive achievements, Mauritius’ economic model is currently showing some signs of exhaustion. The time has come for Mauritius to embark on a journey to develop a new economic model for the coming decades.Our CEO supported the ITC Export Strategy advisers in designing the NES for Mauritius, notably through the elaboration of technical documents, desk research on the Mauritian economy and participation in stakeholder consultations to outline the national level issues and orientations that the NES would focus on

Our Strategy and Impact

The current trade development agenda of Mauritius focuses on facilitating sustainable and shock-resistant growth through trade diversification. In addition, the socio-economic lens has been a prime focus. The NES has been aligned to these fundamental aspects of the development agenda, and focused on covering gaps and overcoming weaknesses.Our Team assisted in a comprehensive desk research on the Mauritian economy and specifically the export value chain and interviewed key buyers and investors relevant to the Mauritian trade sector in. The focus of NES ranged from encouragement of innovation, R&D and factor productivity growth, to further exploiting existing trade preferences.
