Deloitte Bets Big on Mauritius

Boosting the digital and financial economy sectors

Deloitte is committed to building on the promise of the Mauritian economy by investing in the expansion of its business operations in the island. 

At a recently held event attended by senior government officials and business leaders, Romal Shetty, CEO of Deloitte South Asia, said, “Deloitte is committed to Mauritius. Deloitte’s talent pool is not only serving local markets, but the biggest Fortune500 companies in the world. This represents tremendous opportunities for local Mauritian talent, to leverage on our strong global network for skill development. Our ambition for Mauritius is to position the country as a center of excellence to serve our global clients in collaboration with our offices around the world. Our in-depth expertise in digital transformation in advanced markets and the country’s bilingual workforce will help Deloitte in Mauritius to meet this ambitious objective.”

Country Managing Partner, Deloitte in Mauritius, Twaleb Butonkee added, “We are stepping up our presence to fuel economic progress through innovation, collaboration, and sustainable practices. Mauritius has a distinctive advantage to serve as a major economic, trade and cultural link between Asia and Africa, while capitalising on its linguistic ties with francophone regions. This presents a significant opportunity for our professionals to acquire worldwide exposure, engage in impactful transformative projects, and contribute to the growth journey of Deloitte.” 

Deloitte leaders reinforced its commitment for innovation, collaborations, and sustainable practices. As such, Deloitte in Mauritius will drive change on tech enabled services and this will include both technology infrastructure and solutions like generative AI, cyber security, and Fintech amongst others. This resonated well with the Ministers and heads of business who attended the event. 

Minister of Financial Services, Mr. Mahen Kumar Seeruttun, said, “Mauritius is embracing digital transformation and as such, our legislation and ecosystem would need to be at par with this aspiration. Indeed, for businesses to thrive into the future they would require future-ready talent, and we commend the Deloitte strategy on talent development.” 

Minister of Finance, Economic Planning and Development, Dr. Renganaden Padayachy, emphasized that, “As Mauritius reinforces its position as an international financial centre of excellence, we need more talent and expertise of high quality. The recent budget makes provision for a number of reforms in the labour market to attract and retain professionals in the country. This strategy encourages multinationals, like Deloitte, to invest in Mauritius.”
