About the Country

According to Ministry of Information and Communication Technology in Mauritues, the ICT sector, albeit a nascent industry a few years ago, is now the third pillar of the Mauritian economy with a GDP contribution nearing 6.8%, a turnover of $1 billion  and directly employing more than 16,000 people with flow-on benefits for many more.

Acknowledging  the proven capacity of ICT to become an even more powerful tool to accelerate both social cohesion and economic development, while increasing efficiency productivity across all sectors and enable a high standard of living, the  Ministry believes that ICT in general   deserves greater focus from all stakeholders and should therefore be apprehended in a more holistic  way.
