Mauritius: Manufacturing is the cornerstone of the national economy. As the biggest contributor to national wealth creation (17.7% GDP share).

Manufacturing is the cornerstone of the national economy. As the biggest contributor to national wealth creation (17.7% GDP share) and the biggest employer (15.1% of total workforce), this crucial sector is
central to the securing and increasing productive jobs and a decent standard of living for working families, offering major economic benefits through exports.

New trends in the manufacturing sector are driving the industry to move toward high-tech manufacturing focusing on technology, creating an opportunity to promote more resource efficient (and hence competitive) production methods. Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) play a vital role in the development of the Mauritian economy, but will require technical assistance and capacity building to enable them to apply resource efficient and
competitive production methods.
