Project General Description

The present intervention concerns the Competitiveness and Public Sector Efficiency Programme (CPSE). It aims to support three major components of the Government's reform programme, namely: a) consolidate fiscal performance and strengthen public service delivery by supporting development of sector strategies that conform to programme-based budgeting requirements; b) enhance trade competitiveness by supporting reforms in the ICT sector regulatory environment and non-tariff barriers to trade; and c) improve the investment climate by implementing strategies to remove obstacles to business operations. The expected outcomes include: (i) a more efficient and sustainable use of public fiscal resources, (ii) improved ability to compete in international markets, and (iii) a more propitious climate for enterpreneurs to operate job-creation value-added enterprises.

Project Objectives

The objective of the CPSE is to sustain economic growth and employment against the backdrop of the ongoing global recession, while keeping momentum on long-terms reforms needed to make Mauritius more competitive.


The program benefits the public sector and the general population.
