Mauritius is ranked first in sub-Saharan Africa on the ease of doing business survey conducted by the World Bank.
The country was ranked at the same position last year; the report states that “many African governments may look to Mauritius as a source of good practices to inspire regulatory reforms in their own countries”. Mauritius has improved on the ease of ‘getting credit’, ‘enforcing contracts’ and ‘resolving insolvencies’ and the overall score of the country has improved from 73.6 percentage points to 74.4 percentage points.
Mauritius is on the top list among Sub-Saharan Africa countries followed by Rwanda; which has the second highest ranking (62), Botswana (72) and South Africa (73).
