Mauritius’s vice prime minister and minister of finance and economic development, Xavier-Luc Duval, has bagged Africa investor’s Best Finance Minister of Africa Award for the second year running.
The Africa investor Investment and Business Leader Awards 2013 ceremony was held last week during the annual meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank in Washington.
The panel of juries praised Mauritius for its active engagement in promoting regional integration and reducing cross border barriers to trade and investment. This has further helped reinforce the country’s position as a gateway to Africa, one of the critical parameters for the nomination.
Besides, the country has also diversified its economy and has contributed to developing a hospitable environment for investment in sub-regions.
The Africa investor Investment and Business Leader Awards have, since 2005, become an annual event organised by Africa investor to give due recognition to Africa’s best and competent leaders on a global stage. The objective is to reward the major achievements in the business and investment spheres within the African region.
Africa investor (Ai) is an investment banking oriented advisory firm, which also supplies a broad range of investment data, research, broadcast and published content to a growing number of international investors with interests in Africa.
