Written by
Over the past few years, unemployment has been identified as a major economic and social problem in Mauritius. Despite the existence of many sectors and government schemes, many Mauritians, especially young graduates are not able to get a job. Therefore, one of the main objectives of the government is to ensure enough job creation over the next five years.  In additions, the private sector will be empowered to actively participate in the government’s unemployment alleviation mission. Some 15,000 jobs are thus projected to be created annually.  The emergence of new sectors will also contribute significantly to this endeavour.
