The Mauritian Government is aiming to expand investment opportunities across Africa in 2016 by developing a number of special economic zones that will provide favorable conditions, including tax concessions.
Ghana, Madagascar, Senegal, and Zambia have all expressed an interest in collaborating with Mauritius to develop these economic zones. The Government of Mauritius said the zones will open up new opportunities for domestic businesses.
Each planned SEZ will have a distinct focus depending on the local economic opportunities. For example, the SEZ in Ghana will be targeted towards technology companies, while the SEZs in Madagascar and Senegal will be focused on cargo logistics.
