Mauritius: The construction sector on the island in full of doubt with the dropping of construction sites

The construction sector in Mauritius is in full economic crash.
While the industry experienced the previous year a significant drop in its activities of almost 9.4%, the construction sector is expected to be hit hard in 2014, with an envisaged decrease of 9% of its growth and a reduction in the number of construction sites on the island, as reported by the newspaper Le Matinal.
"It is expected that with the next budget, the government put in place measures to see that the projects can be done in time. The Euro crisis has certainly resulted a slowdown in several projects, but we now expect the government to come forward with measures to ensure that projects can take off, "says Bhooshan Ramloll entrepreneur in construction, and a member of the Building and Civil Engineering Contractors Association (BACECA).
