Mauritius – The Crown Jewel of Apparel Sourcing in Africa
Germany is a major trading partner for Mauritius. Our exports of sugar, textiles, fruits, cut flowers and other products have access into the German market under the ACP/EU conventions.
It is however noted that with imports (mainly machines, fabrics, motor cars, chemical products) Mauritius continues to have a negative trade balance with Germany. In order to correct the trade imbalance, it is necessary to promote our visible trade with Germany as well as attract German investment in various sectors of our economy, including tourism, offshore, financial and services sectors.
