Further to initiatives taken by Mauritius Mission to the UN in Geneva, a number of Policy documents have been prepared by International Organisations based in Geneva after extensive consultations with Mauritian stakeholders, reflecting national priorities in Mauritius. These Policy Documents include:
(i) National Export Strategy (NES), launched in Mauritius in March 2017, prepared by the International Trade Centre (ITC)
(ii) Intellectual Property Development Plan (IPDP), prepared by the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO)
(iii) Genetic Resources and Traditional Knowledge Platform, prepared by WIPO.
(iv) Strategic Investment Plan (SIP), a Concept Note soon to be issued by UNCTAD.
(v) The Report on the Implementation of the Investment Policy Review (IPR) of Mauritius, soon to be issued by UNCTAD.
In view of the above Policy Documents, reflecting national priorities of Mauritius, one of the grand challenges for Mauritius would be to identify reliable funding sources and/or devote financial resources with a view to implementing the recommendations of the ITC, WIPO and UNCTAD.
These recommendations have been made by experts and are aimed at enhancing and harmonising the socio-economic development of the country. It will also be important for the relevant Mauritian authorities to coordinate their efforts effectively in order to ensure the successful implementation of the recommendations made by the experts.
