why mauritius ?

For Mauritius, a smart city is described as a “concept of urban development focused on improving the quality of life of city dwellers by making the city more attractive, adaptable, efficient and resilient to change, using new technologies that rely on an ecosystem of objects and services”. In accordance with the country’s Economic Mission Statement – Vision 2030, the ocean economy, smart cities, and the maritime hub are all potential high investment and high-employment areas.

The Smart City Scheme is an ambitious economic development programme of the Government of Mauritius, aimed at consolidating the Mauritian international business and financial hub by creating ideal conditions for working, living and spurring investment – through the development of smart cities across the island. The Smart City Scheme provides an enabling framework and a package of attractive fiscal and non-fiscal incentives to investors for the development of smart cities. The development of smart cities in Mauritius is opening up a plethora of investment opportunities to share in the vision of Mauritius in creating intelligent, innovative and sustainable cities of tomorrow.

The Mon Trésor Smart City Project is a one of its kind multi-faceted development to be set up near the SSR International Airport. The project aims to stimulate innovative scientific and technological activities, provide technology-driven facilities to the business community and create a vibrant city lifestyle.
