Summary:

The loss of trade preferences in textiles in 2005, the reform to the European Union’s sugar protocol for 2006–10, and higher international oil prices have brought about a permanent deterioration in Mauritius’s terms of trade. This 2007 Article IV Consultation highlights that the authorities have initiated broad-based reforms to address recent economic setbacks and to raise growth to levels of the previous two decades. Executive Directors have welcomed the authorities’ efforts to tighten monetary policy. This should help to reduce inflation and avoid entrenching inflation expectations.
