Mauritius sits down to devise a ‘more effective’ Africa strategy

Published

Devising an effective Africa Strategy is complex and multidimensional.  Hence, it is imperative to have as many insights as possible before deciding on the way forward. It is also important to have a coordinated approach to prevent duplication of action and enable the optimal use of resources.

Such were the words of Alan Ganoo, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Regional Integration and International Trade as he sat down for a ‘brainstorming session’ with several economic players on Tuesday July 6.

Business Mauritius, the Mauritius Bankers Association Limited, Straconsult ABDS (Africa Business Development Services) and Eclosia are reported to have presented their proposals in the virtual presence of Mauritian diplomats posted in Egypt, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Mozambique, and South Africa.

“It is essential that our Africa Strategy be revisited in such a way that it contributes to the swift economic recovery”, said Ganoo.

Participants highlighted the need to increase imports and exports to Africa; to avail more efficiently of opportunities of the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa; to enhance regional sea, air and digital connectivity; to position Mauritius as an international financial centre of repute in the region; to promote an education system that adapts to the post-COVID-19 challenges; to have more experts in regional and international organisations; and to play a more active role in various partnerships that exist with Africa so as to improve the visibility and image of Mauritius.
