GIS - Nov 27, 2012: The third edition of the Directory of ICT Companies in Mauritius, published by the National Computer Board (NCB), was launched on 23 November by the Minister of Information and Communication Technology, Tassarajen Pillay Chedumbrum, at La Grande Cannelle, Domaine Les Pailles.

The Directory provides comprehensive information on the Mauritian ICT industry and its operators.  It represents an effective tool to market the know-how, product and services of ICT companies operating in Mauritius.  The Directory is also a guide for international outsourcers looking to do business with ICT service providers in Mauritius and potential investors in the ICT sector looking for local partners.

This third edition contains a list of major local ICT operators, information on their activities, expertise, products and services, contact details, as well as on export potential and markets.

The NCB published the 1st edition of the Directory of ICT Companies in Mauritius in 2006 and the second edition in 2009.  Both editions received positive feedback from the local ICT industry players and were used as marketing materials to promote the expertise of the local ICT companies.

In his speech, the ICT Minister, Mr Pillay Chedumbrum, said that today the Mauritian ICT sector is not only considered as a high revenue and employment generating one, but is also one of the key support sectors for the country’s other economic activities.

According to the Minister, in order to ensure further efficient growth of Mauritius’ ICT industry, Government is not relenting in its efforts to promote the industry abroad and to facilitate the establishment of partnerships between local and international operators.  International giants of the ICT industry are being attracted through targeted initiatives and all diplomatic means are being used to develop export markets, he added.

Currently over 500 companies are operating in Mauritius, including world leaders, operating in the ICT sector. These companies are involved in a wide range of activities including software development, Call Centre operations, BPO and ITES, training, hardware assembly and sales, networking and other support services. ITES and BPO are important segments of the local ICT industry and have experienced significant growth over the past years. More than 300 ITES/BPO companies, mostly foreign owned, are servicing export markets mainly to Europe and USA.​
