Welcome to Mauritius

Prime Minister, Republic of Mauritius

Welcome to the Mauritius portal of the Commonwealth of Nations website.

Mauritius is proud to be a member of the Commonwealth and is fully committed to upholding and promoting its values and ideals. We have a long-standing relationship with the Commonwealth which has a strong tradition of shared values such as the promotion of democracy, good governance, the rule of law and the protection of human rights, as enshrined in the Charter of the organisation.

The Commonwealth has a global relevance and profile and is also an internationally well-respected organisation that makes its voice heard on major issues.

The organisation has played an important role in having the special development challenges faced by small island developing states, like Mauritius, acknowledged at the global level. It has put in place a framework for small states to build resilience and Mauritius is fully supportive of the work undertaken by the Commonwealth in that respect.

Mauritius is at the crossroads of civilisation and is a melting pot of diverse cultures from Africa, Asia and Europe. The co-existence of its multicultural people and their harmonious interaction makes Mauritius a replica of the global village.

Since its independence in 1968, Mauritius has experienced significant socio-economic progress, yet it is faced with new challenges. My government is set to steer the Mauritian economy to a much higher plane of development, boost GDP growth and improve the quality of life of Mauritian citizens.

Mauritius is strategically located as it provides a gateway to Africa, Asia and Australia. The country has also transformed itself into a business hub for investors in search of security, transparent regulation and high value-addition.

Mauritius is strongly committed to working together with other members of the organisation to improve the destiny of the peoples of the Commonwealth and of the generations to come.

On behalf of the government and the people of the Republic of Mauritius, I invite you to discover more about our country and the various opportunities awaiting you by navigating through the Mauritius portal.
