Business Mauritius (BM)

Business Mauritius came into operation in October 2015 following the restructuring of the Mauritius Employers’ Federation (MEF) and the closing down of the Joint Economic Council (JEC). These two private sector institutions were set up, respectively, in 1962 and 1970. They have merged to operate as a single organisation now known as Business Mauritius (BM).
