Located in the Indian Ocean and at the crossroads between Asia, Europe, and Africa, the Democratic Republic of Mauritius is a multicultural society open to the world.

With its numerous free trade agreements and double taxation treaties, as well as its extensive airline connectivity, the island deserves its reputation as the “key to Africa”. A high standard of living, a stable political climate, and buoyant economic sectors (tourism, finance, real estate, and communication) make it a strategic decision for international investors.
