What advantages does Mauritius offer to encourage the creation of French companies on its territory?
Vijayen Valaydon, Ambassador of Mauritius in France

France is one of the very first investors in Mauritius, and France is also our first foreign investor. It is our second customer and as far as the tourist sector is concerned, France is always first. I have to say that France has successfully managed to diversify, knew how to follow and support Mauritius on an economic level, and what is more, we now have big French groups investing in us, as well as many French small to medium sized business investors. The climate is very attractive in Mauritius and we have an economy that attracts investors, particularly French investors. I should point out that there are currently more than 150,000 French expatriates in Mauritius. So what is behind this passion for Mauritius? Well of course there are political, cultural and historical reasons. The French language has always been embedded in Mauritius - it is the language of media and of business. We also have an ideal legal framework. As you know, Mauritius benefited from the input of two cultures - English culture and French culture, and this also applies to the legal framework. In Mauritius we have the Napoleonic code, for example, and additionally Mauritius is a democratic country that is both socially and politically stable and is therefore very appealing. The Mauritian welcome is legendary and is talked about by French people, so we have the necessary conditions for attracting investors, particularly French investors.
