- The Mauritian economy maintained real growth of 3.2% in 2014, the same as that achieved in 2013, and growth is forecast to strengthen to 3.5% in 2015 and 3.6% in 2016 on the back of increased domestic investment and stronger external demand.
- Mauritius maintained its position as the most competitive economy in sub-Saharan Africa and witnessed a smooth political transition following parliamentary elections in December 2014.
- The country’s relatively small geographic size and high population density means that government and non-state actors in Mauritius are in close collaboration to ensure sustainable spatial development plans for the island-economy.
The Bank Group’s Country Strategy Paper (CSP) for Mauritius (2009–2013) approved by the Board in September, 2009 (ADB/DB/WP/2009/146) expires at the end of 2013. Designed to help the economy respond to the global economic downturn while supporting the country’s development priorities, it is anchored on two pillars: (i) reducing structural bottlenecks to competitiveness and trade and (ii) enhancing public sector efficiency and social service delivery.
