A study by Kantar TNS has revealed that only 35% of respondents believe that the 2021/2022 Budget will boost the economy. And 44% do not think that the measures will help people in difficulty.

Citing the findings, Defi Media reported that only 46% of respondents consider the budgetary measures as being encouraging for entrepreneurs.

“The measures and proposals of the Budget are not perceived as having a strong future impact on the Mauritian economy or as carriers of a new vision”, Kantar said.

Most Mauritians interviewed reportedly said increasing the prices of Alcoholic drinks and cigarettes will not discourage the consumption of alcohol and tobacco while 56% do not think that the measures will help reduce alcohol-related violence.

“The social impact of the Budget is barely perceptible to the general public,” Kantar noted.
