Project General Description

The Public Sector Competitiveness and Efficiency Program (CPSE) aims to support economic growth and employment against a backdrop of global economic recession, while staying on course with the long-term reforms needed to make Mauritius more competitive. This program is a support operation to the general budget, with a total loan amount of US $ 420 million and € 186 million, to be implemented over a period of two and a half years, July 2009 to December 2011. It has three components: (i) consolidate financial performance and improve the delivery of social services in the public sector; (ii) increase the competitiveness of trade; and (iii) improve the investment climate.

Project Objectives

The objective of the program is to consolidate fiscal performance and improve the delivery of social services in the public sector, increase the competitiveness of trade and improve the investment climate.


The program will mainly benefit the entire population of Mauritius, due to the extent of reforms to be implemented. Specific beneficiaries include: (i) users of public social services; ii) domestic and foreign entrepreneurs; (iii) the economically active population of Mauritius, including women exposed to dismissal in the textile industry; and (iv) the most disadvantaged sections of the population, including Rodrigues Island.
