Mauritius keen on developing regional business corridor
The Mauritius Minister of Industry, Commerce and Consumer Protection, Cader Sayed-Hossen, underlined the role of the International Trade Centre (ITC) in supporting the implementation of a trade facilitation agreement and helping to develop a National Export Strategy which will promote economic diversification and growth. Mr Sayed-Hossen said this during his meeting with the Executive Director of the ITC, Arancha González, in Geneva on 18 March 2014.
The Executive Director commended the efforts of Enterprise Mauritius, the national trade promotion organisation (TPO), to build a strong network of African TPOs which can enhance regional economic integration.
The ITC held a workshop on non-tariff measures (NTMs) in Mauritius in January this year to discuss the findings of an ITC study on the impact of NTMs on Mauritian exporters as well as offering solutions and policy options to address issues, including sector and enterprise competitiveness.
