Summary:

Mauritius is seeking to become a high-income economy within the next ten years. The growth strategy is anchored around an ambitious public investment program and improvements in the business climate. However, fiscal space is limited, and competitiveness bottlenecks are limiting the gains from trade. The macroeconomic outlook is broadly positive. Growth in 2017 is projected at 3.9 percent in 2017, and about 4.0 percent over the medium term. However, the vibrant Global Business Sector faces pressure from international anti-tax avoidance initiatives.
