Mauritius Continues Role As Conduit For Africa Investment

The Mauritius Government is seeking to leverage its competitive advantages to create a positive environment for cross-border investment, according to Mauritius's Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Arvin Boolell.

Speaking at a South African Development Community (SADC) national workshop on construction and energy-related services, Boolell stressed the importance of foreign investment for emerging markets, and reaffirmed his commitment to maintaining an enabling environment through which investment into Africa can be channeled.

Organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Regional Integration and International Trade, in collaboration with the SADC Secretariat, the two-day national workshop brought together some 30 participants from the public and private sectors. Talks focused on SADC member states' current Trade in Services negotiations, which are based on a request/offer basis. The objective of the two-day workshop was to assist stakeholders in the preparation of requests to SADC member states. Regulatory bottlenecks and other impediments to investors' access to the construction and energy-related services markets in the region were also discussed.

The SADC comprises 15 African member states, and was established to remove barriers between members to develop a more favorable environment for international trade and investment.
