Strategy for development of Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology sectors in Mauritius

Positioning Mauritius as a Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Hub

The Government of Mauritius envisions creating the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry as a national pillar to boost export revenues and create jobs. International Economics, in consortium with Landell Mills International Ltd., is conducting a comprehensive feasibility study to devise a strategy for the development of these two sectors in Mauritius.

What We Found

The aim of this project is to assist in the establishment and focused strategic planning for Mauritius’ pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry. To achieve this, the team will advise, coordinate, and support market analysis, legislative review, skills gap analysis and the development and implementation of a strategy and action plan.

Our Strategy and Impact

In particular, the team will conduct a market assessment of the regional and global biopharmaceutical system to establish a list of priority products with regards to Mauritius’ competitive edge and value proposition. The team will analyse the regional market’s potential, the legal and regulatory framework in Mauritius and the availability of skills in the local market to develop strategic options on products to be developed and identify potential target investors for each option. The output of the project will be an Implementation Roadmap which will establish a governance framework for implementation in addition to providing a detailed action plan, timelines and key performance indicators.

At International Economics Consulting, based on our extensive experience in international trade, we help our clients grow by: · Identifying investment opportunities. Changing political, economic and consumer profiles lead to new challenges and opportunities for investment. We help investors assess the opportunities in different markets, determine the feasibility and viability, and benchmark the wider eco-system to support business growth. We assess regulatory and policy barriers and inventives and connect with local businesses and policy makers. · Mapping sourcing opportunities. The proliferation of trade agreements between countries has created immense opportunities for countries and businesses to explore new markets. We provide our clients with a detailed analysis and recommendations of the key impacts of new trade agreements on their operations and competitiveness through an assessment of tariff, and non-tariff tariff barriers, provisions on rules of origin, customs efficiency and effectiveness of transport networks. · Optimising supply chain management The complexity of trade arrangements may also lead to numerous challenges around supply chain management. We analyse existing supply chains and carry out trade-off analyses by identifying and structuring our client’s global production networks and envisioning creative, manageable alternative sourcing capabilities, within a complex multi-country, multi-sector resource, costs, and provisioning structure. To increase reliability and mitigate risks, we model uncertainties that may arise using probability distribution functions throughout the production life cycle. We employ systems dynamic thinking, combined with trade-off analysis in a bid to optimise supply chains and ensure efficiency throughout. We help our clients carry out due diligence assessments of suppliers, and work through the trade-offs before defining the company’s outsourcing strategy’. · Building resilience and growth To build preparedness for any potential risks, we help our clients by introducing real-time and historical event data on disruptions to supply chains. This data includes a range of information such as weather, political events, policy uncertainty and associated risks, among many more.
