The 2023-2024 budgetary measures aim at making Mauritius an even more competitive and attractive destination to work, together with the ambition to attract investments and strengthen the economy. Taxation is one of the premise to attain this aim.

Building trust for lasting impact on business and society.

Trust has never been more important. It's the link that connects your organisation, your people, your customers, your stakeholders and the world. We know that trust isn't something you can buy off the shelf. We work to earn and grow trust through every interaction, every experience and every relationship. Every day.

Case study

Becoming Fit for Purpose

The Peel Regional Police in Ontario, Canada were dealing with what many law enforcement departments face - they were structured in a way that didn’t always make sense for the problems they were trying to solve. The Chief wanted to take down barriers for his staff, instead of creating them. The police service needed to relook at their vision and operations to determine top priorities, including improved on-the-job technology, strategic innovation and community policing initiatives that build trust and relationships.

Case study

Transforming Global Shipping

90% of the world’s traded goods travel by ship. However, the global shipping industry faces difficulties like congestion and container shortages. A global data platform powered by blockchain could help. But first, antitrust and regulatory hurdles would have to be cleared in each of the many jurisdictions involved.
