Dynamising Export Competitiveness

image of Mauritius

This paper analyses the attempt by Mauritius to replicate the export success of the East Asia Tiger Economies by adapting outwardoriented trade and investment strategies. It reviews Mauritius' competitive strengths and weaknesses at the national and enterprise level: its policies for trade, industry, foreign investment, industrial technology, human capital and EPZ infrastructure, and provides a detailed strategy for sustaining future export competitiveness. The Mauritius experience offers valuable lessons for other developing and transition economies.

Human Resources for Competitiveness

This chapter reviews the human capital base in Mauritius in a comparative perspective. It is widely acknowledged in Mauritius that its future comparative advantage does not lie in cheap labour but in an advanced base of skills, which it presently lacks. It is also accepted that worker attitudes and motivation are deficient, and that future competitiveness will require a more hardworking and dedicated work-force.
