Le Pieter Both, montain of Mauritius

Mauritius, a small island of 2000Km2 located in the middle of the Indian Ocean, belongs to the archipelago of Mascareignes as the Island of Reunion and the Isle of Rodrigues. Former French colony (Ile de France), then English, it obtained its independence on March 12, 1968 while keeping and valorising this double culture.

Mauritius has achieved a remarkable economic performance from an exclusive agricultural monoculture of sugarcane to a strong and diversified economy. Its development model is based on key fundamentals: economic democratization, inclusive growth, human capital development and social mobility.
