Yearbook 2003

Mauritius. According to Countryaah.com, Mauritius Independence Day is March 12. The former head of the country’s oldest and largest private bank, Mauritius Commercial Bank, was indicted in February for embezzlement and money laundering.

On September 30, Mauritania got his first non-Indian prime minister, Paul Bérenger, who is of French origin. Indomauritans make up 70% of the country’s population and have held power since independence in 1968. Bérenger entered into a special power-sharing agreement signed by both parties Mauritius Socialist Movement (MSM) and Mauritius Militant Movement (MMM) to defeat the Labor Party in the 2000 elections. In accordance with the agreement, the MSM leader Anerood Jugnauth was prime minister until September 30, 2003, when the MMM leader Bérenger took over. At the same time, Jugnauth transitioned to the ceremonial post of president.

With the help of foreign investment, during the year, the construction of a large IT and telecommunications center outside the capital Port Louis was underway. With the facility, which is being built under the guidance of Indian specialists, Mauritania wants to attract foreign companies and diversify the economy which today is dependent on textile manufacturing, luxury tourism and sugar exports. At the same time, major investments were made to increase IT skills at all levels of the school.
