The Free Trade Agreement (FTA) signed between Mauritius and Turkey in September 2011, has now been ratified by the Turkish authorities.
The next steps are the presidential assent, before the Government of Turkey notifies the Government of Mauritius. The FTA will then be in force and operational as from this year. This FTA will now enable Mauritius to have duty free access on all industrial products.

Some 70 industrial products (mainly textiles) will have duty phased over a period of five years. Concerning agricultural products, Mauritius will have preferential access for some 50 products constituted mainly of tropical fruits, vegetables, flowers, etc. Small enterprises will be able to tap a new market as regards local fruits and flowers. Under the FTA, Turkey will charge preferential duty on Mauritian products including textiles, clothing and agricultural products.
Industrial products will have unlimited access to the Turkish economy. Mauritius will also allow preferential access to all Turkish manufactured goods, except those like meat, soap and paints, which have been classified as 'sensitive' products.

Mauritian imports from Turkey currently represent about 1% of total imports of the Island. Among the goods imported are cereals, flour, machinery, base metals and pharmaceutical products. Mauritian exports to Turkey are mainly fabrics, woven cotton apparels, which amounted to an estimated US$ 2.5 million in 2008. As regards imports, Mauritius imported mainly manufactured products such as electric cables, oven cookers, refrigerators, iron bar, floor and ceiling fittings and sweet biscuits.
