Japanese firms tapping on Mauritius IFC to step into Africa

The Financial Services Promotion Agency (FSPA) held a working session with a Japanese delegation led by Mr Yasutoshi NISHIMURA, Chairman of the Standing Committee on Cabinet at the House of Representatives of Japan.

One of the topics discussed is the role that Mauritius can play as an internationally recognized Financial Centre of choice for Japanese firms willing to set footprints in the African continent.

“The Mauritius IFC is an ideal regional financial and business hub for Japanese investors and finance houses expanding their footprint in Africa and the region.  Japanese firms can set up their Global Headquarters and Treasury Centres in Mauritius.  At the level of the FSPA, we are engaging with a number of new markets, including Japan as part of the market diversification strategy for our financial centre.  To this end, we will be welcoming a delegation of Japanese firms considering the Mauritius IFC early next year as well,” stated Harvesh Seegoolam, the Chief Executive of the FSPA.
