Mauritius: The euro unscrewed dangerously against the rupee

The Mauritian rupee is constantly gaining ground compared to its evolution in the interbank market currencies against the plummeting euro.
In one year, the Mauritian rupee has thus been particularly appreciated against the euro by more than 9%. One euro was sold at 36.36 rupees last Friday at a historically low rates. The euro fell dangerously in exchange value against the Mauritian rupee while at the beginning in January 2014 the euro was trading at more than 41 rupees.
