About Mauritius

Mauritius is one of the most open economies in the Africa region and has become a key platform for investment and doing business in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Strategically situated in the Indian Ocean, 2,400 km off the southeast coast of Africa, Mauritius is a former colony of both France and Britain. It gained independence in 1968 and, following the adoption of a new constitution, became a republic in 1992.

The Republic of Mauritius has an appointed president as the head of state and a parliament, which is elected every five years by popular vote, as the legislative body. The Economist magazine rated Mauritius as the only “full” democracy in Africa. Its legal system derives from both French civil law and English common law. Unlike many other former colonies, Mauritius has retained the Privy Council as its ultimate Court of Appeal. This guarantees an appeal process that is independent of any political or other form of bias.
