Frontier Strategy Group: Mauritius ranked first in the resilience to external shock index.

Mauritius is ranked first in the classification of African countries in the index of resilience to external shock, published by the Frontier Strategy Group.

Frontier Strategy Group, developed a Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) Resilience to External Shocks Index (RESI). It assesses SSA markets’ socioeconomic fundamentals and internal strength by looking at measures of political stability, trade exposure, economic diversification, wealth, and productivity.

Frontier Strategy Group pointed out that the most attractive countries for multinationals are those who combine a high level of resilience to external shocks and strong economic growth. These characteristics are found in countries that offer sustainable growth opportunities for businesses, namely Mauritius, Côte d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania, Namibia, Senegal, Nigeria, and Uganda.
