Mauritius is a politically stable jurisdiction with a system of law inspired by English common law and French civil law, with a final right of judicial recourse to the Judicial Committee of The  Privy Council of the United Kingdom, but at the same time being geographically and culturally close to countries in Africa and Asia.  

 

The combination of political stability, lawfulness and geographic location makes Mauritius a preferred platform for establishing holding structures in the emerging markets of Africa and Asia. Mauritius is a member of the Southern African Development Community (SADC), the Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA) and the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA).
