We are pleased to present you with our first PwC CEO Survey for Mauritius.

You will read in this report that the outlook for growth remains favourable in Mauritius, as the country is one of the most competitive economies in Africa.

While strategies will vary by company depending on its plan of action, operating model, industry context and competitive landscape, overcoming operational challenges and other essential elements for their survival will be crucial to capitalise on these growth opportunities.

83% of CEOs in Mauritius exhibit strong confidence in the country’s economic prospects, compared to a 38% global sentiment.
