The development of Mauritius has mirrored developments at the University of Mauritius since the country took independence and planted the first seeds of economic growth. Now, the University of Mauritius seeks to create a research-led innovation economy it points to an exciting future for the country.
"Innovation is at the centre of our goals. The University should not be considered the centre of our work, innovation is at the centre and the University is a partner in developing innovation. This is an important mindset shift."
Africa is increasingly important. Previously we had focused mainly on South Africa and maybe neglected other parts of the continent, but since last year Kenya Airways has come in with five flights per week. With Kenya Airways and Air Mauritius flying from the continent, we are developing various strategies for growth.
