Welcome to the "Observatoire de L'Industrie" of Mauritius

Knowledge is a crucial resource to business operators and policy-makers for informed decision-making. Organisations must indeed optimise on information as part of their strategy to achieve and exceed performance objectives. They have no choice but to keep abreast of new developments in this era when information is travelling at the speed of light and when the world economy has definitely graduated into a global village. However, the business community and policy-makers have time constraint to access relevant, up-to-date and pertinent information, which are dispersed and often in complex formats.

In this context, the Government Programme 2010-2015 and the Industrial Strategic Plan 2010-2013 provided for the setting up of an Observatoire de L'Industrie. The objective is to bridge this information gap by scanning the domestic, regional and global business and economic environment for information dissemination to business operators, policy-makers, the academia and the public at large.
