Business Mauritius and the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Monday, 21 February 2022, during a virtual event. This protocol aims at establishing exchanges of expertise and enhancing business opportunities between Mauritius and the Pacific Islands. Mauritius thus becomes the first African country to sign such an agreement with the PIF Secretariat.
This collaboration brings together the Pacific private sector – businesses, industry and employer organisations – and Business Mauritius, the peak body representing over 1200 companies in Mauritius. Sharing lessons and best-practice is part of South-South cooperation and strengthening Small Islands Developing States partnerships, particularly for post-COVID economic recovery.
