Why Mauritius for your apparel needs?
Because Mauritius, with its high educated population, is politically and socially stable with no disruption in our supply chain. With the different trade agreements with USA, Europe and Africa, apparels made in Mauritius, enjoy quota free and duty free access to all these countries.
1-Thanks to the creation of Export Processing Zone, Mauritius has now a long garment history which had contributed substantially towards employment creation and poverty reduction. Today, Mauritius is fully integrated into the global supply chain, attracting export-oriented investments, and achieving the economic objectives of job creation.
2-The massive recent investments in the public infrastructure, namely a modern airport with interconnecting motorways across the island, has made communications easier. The geographical location in the Indian Ocean gives Mauritius the advantage of importing raw materials directly from the Far East and Indian subcontinent. Direct vessel availability from these destinations also allows for shorter lead times. Direct daily flights to main cities of our European clients, have further developed trade and tourism.
3 - AGOA (African Growth and Opportunity Act) provides duty-free and quota-free treatment for apparel articles and other commodities exported to the USA. Mauritius enjoys a duty-free agreement with Europe.
4-Mauritius has been ranked first for " Ease of Doing Business" among the African economies and 17th out of 183 nations by the World Bank. Mauritius is a member of the COMESA, the SADC, the Indian Ocean Rim Association, ( IOR-ARC) and the Indian Ocean Commission (IOC),
