MAURITIUS

COUNTRY CAPTURE PROFILE

Mauritius' textile industry is rightly considered as the catalyst of the Mauritian industrial revolution. For the past 4 decades, the textile industry has spearheaded the structural transformation of  the Mauritian economy to such  an extent, that this sector has acted as an engine for economic growth, attracting FDI from various countries, creating new employment opportunities, and  strengthening the manufacturing base of the economy. Evolving from  a producer of basic product, the country today operates as a vertically integrated supplier of high  value added, design-driven garments. Mauritian companies provide flexible solutions adapted to the needs  of buyers from the world over (volumes, CMT and final product etc.). Some of the leading entrepreneurial manufacturers have accumulated enough expertise to invest in additional production units in neighboring countries. The  regional transfer of Mauritian expertise has  turned Mauritius into the leading sector hub in South-Eastern Africa.
