Leading economic indicators point that the domestic economy is gathering growth momentum.
However, Mauritius is subject to a number of external vulnerabilities such as anticipated normalisation of the interest rates in some advanced economies, stumbling recovery and renewed threat of recession coupled with very low inflation in Eurozone, which may have financial stability implications domestically and thus have a bearing on its growth path.
SBI expects to keep abreast of the economic growth by capitalising on the opportunities that should accompany global and domestic recovery while maintaining a prudent stance by focusing on risk management on account of the ongoing fragile economic conditions.
