Mauritius offers great opportunity to Indian business houses to make investment in different sectors, including textile manufacturing, Seewraj Nundlall, country head of board of investment, Mauritius, told reporters recently in Chandigarh.
 
The Mauritius government provides hassle-free environment for companies to start their own business, Nundlall said.

Indian companies can also consider Mauritius as an investment destination for access to African countries.
 
Last year, Mauritius exports to India were valued at $20 billion while its imports were $2 billion. To further increase its exports to India, Mauritius has identified several items, which includes high-end garments.
