About Mauritius

Mauritius, the Crossroad between Africa and Asia

Blessed not only by nature but also by location, Mauritius provides an opportunity of fusion between the East and the West.

Mauritius is situated in the Indian Ocean, approximately 2400 kilometres off the South East coast of Africa. The island, which is of volcanic origin, covers an area of 1,865 square kilometres or 720 square miles. Coral reefs surround most of the coast except the South.

The average temperature during day time is 25° C (75° F) and rarely under 13° C (62° F) at night. There are two seasons, hot from November to April and warm from May to October.

The Economic Pillars of Mauritius

The main economic pillars are: Cane, Technology, Textile, Tourism, Financial Services, and ICT/BPO with healthcare and education being the two emerging sectors. Mauritius has positioned itself as the place where you can launch your business activities into the rest of the African continent due to its close proximity, numerous flight connections, strong banking system and a place where it is easy to set up and maintain a business centre. The average GDP growth for the last 10 years has been 5%.

Political and Legal Framework

Mauritius has a democratic parliament and holds a general election every 5 years. Mauritius prides itself on its social stability in a multicultural and ethnic environment. It operates a legal system primarily based on English Law.

Fiscal Policy

Personal, corporate and value added tax is set at a flat rate of 15%, dividends are tax free and there is no capital gains tax. In addition there is no exchange control.

Education in Mauritius

Primary and Secondary education is compulsory and free in government schools. The general population literacy rate is 90% and French and English are taught as primary languages at school. There is a strong parental commitment to education and an increasing awareness of the need for Tertiary education for skilling the younger generation of Mauritians in the requirements of the modern world. More recently, the number of mainland African students attending tertiary education in Mauritius has increased substantially, solidifying the view of Mauritius as a respected model of education within Africa.

Capital and Major Cities

PORT LOUIS – THE CAPITAL CITY

Port-Louis naturally grew to be the economic and administrative capital of Mauritius after it superseded Mahebourg in the early eighteenth century because of the superior quality of its harbour.

CUREPIPE

Curepipe stands at the lower tip of the urban zone which stretches diagonally across the island from Port-Louis, through Beau-Bassin, Rose-Hill, Quatre-Bornes, Vacoas and Phoenix. The strangeness of the name ‘Curepipe’ has given rise to fanciful etymologies, the most persistent of which is that travelers used to stop there to ‘cure’ their pipes! Curepipe today is an elegant residential town with prize colonial houses, pleasant public gardens and a ultra-modern vegetable market!

MAHEBOURG

Mahebourg is named after one of the foremost figures in the history of the Island, the French governor Mahe de Labourdonnais. A visit to the Naval Museum in Mahebourg reveals the richness of the historical past of the village.

GRAND BAIE

Grand Baie owes its popularity to the enchanting quality of its emerald waters and to its liveliness by day or by night. It offers facilities for safe swimming, sailing, windsurfing, and water skiing. Grand Baie also hosts a variety of fashion and craft shops, hotels, restaurants, and night-clubs.

People and Culture

Mauritius is a densely populated island of around 1.3 million people. It has a reputation for stability and racial harmony among its mixed population. Mauritius is known as a plural society where all the ethnic groups present: Hindus, Muslims, Creoles, Chinese and Europeans live in peace and where all the ancestral cultures have been preserved. These features make the island a unique place in the world, and the Mauritians known for their tolerance and kindness towards all people.

Most Mauritians are bilingual being equally fluent in French and English. English is the official language, but French and Creole are widely spoken. Oriental languages also form part of the linguistic mosaic.
