Private investment is one of the main sections of which the Mauritian government wishes to make use to boost the economic growth of the island and be close to a rate of 5.3% for the 2015-16 fiscal year.
Nevertheless, private investment will further decline slightly this year. The forecast of the national accounts estimate that private investments in the contribution to the GDP is going to reach 14% in 2015, against 14.2% recorded last year. Private investment has thus been declining since 2012.
As a reminder, the Mauritian authorities have focused for growth of 5.3% of the economy of the country June 30, 2016. And this growth is expected to reach 5.7% for the 2016-2017 period and bring back the Mauritian economy growth comparable to that known before the global financial crisis.
