ABOUT THE REPUBLIC OF MAURITIUS

 

Located in the Indian ocean and at 3, 640 km southeast of the African terra-firma,
the Republic of Mauritius is an independent and developing country of 2,040 kmand counts a
population of around 1.2 million inhabitants. The Republic of Mauritius is famous for several distinguishing
qualities, namely its white beaches, beautiful sceneries, its religious diversity, amongst many others.

Member of the Commonwealth of Nations, Mauritius used to be under
French sovereignty in the early 18th Century but was then taken up by Great Britain in 1810 until
independence was proclaimed in March 1968. Mauritius then became a republic in 1992.
The island’s official language is English. However, both French and the local dialect, the Mauritian Creole
are widely used.

Mauritius’ economy is based on tourism, textile, agriculture and
financial services. Mauritius has had a stable and democratic system of government since its
independence, with powers fully vested in the Prime Minister, Head of the Government.
