Mauritius’ economic and trade policies are liberal, with a trade-to-GDP proportion of 78.7 %. Mauritius aim to transform the island into an accessible and highly competitive economy, and to integrate into the global trade system. In comparison, the island has very few trade restrictions and limited import taxes. Mauritius has a structural trade deficit because it imported products more than it exports. As a result of the global crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, both exportation and importation decreased in 2020.
