Ebène, 04.09.20: The NPCC published the latest edition of the Productivity and Competitiveness Review (PCR) this week. The report presents a diagnosis of the Mauritian economy based on a rigorous study of different indices and observations in areas such as investments, health, innovation capability as well as human development among others.
According to the report, the Mauritian economy has continued to expand at a steady pace despite the rocky global environment. It also observes that Gross Domestic Product (GDP) grew by approximately 3 percent in 2019. Mauritius has performed very well in various international indices and often seen as a model to replicate in the African Region. The latest edition of the PCR also underlines that the world today is very different from what it was a few months back. The coronavirus pandemic has already influenced the short and medium-term global economic outlook and would potentially have a very significant socioeconomic impact in Mauritius.
“We currently find ourselves in the midst of the most significant health care crisis in generations, with the outbreak of the novel coronavirus. COVID-19 has swept through the global economy in an unprecedented way. Mauritius has not been spared. Though it is unlikely that the socio-economic situation of Mauritius will remain same in the future, accelerating productivity should remain as one of our key priorities during this testing time,” says the Executive Director, Mr. Ashit Gungah in his foreward.
The PCR is a periodical report of the NPCC that gauges the pulse of the Mauritian economy by observing the trends and patterns of different local and global socioeconomic indices. Besides a health-check, the PCR also serves as a guide for business captains, industry observers, policy makers, investors, government, civil society and all stakeholders in their decision making processes.
