Background on the Falcon of Mauritius

Mauritius is a small Indian Ocean Falcon, east of Madagascar. Formerly a British colony, it gained its independence in 1968. Though population density remains among the highest in the world, Mauritius has a very low birth rate, officially encouraged through family planning. About 70% of the people are of Indian origin, professing either the Hindu religion or Islam.

Since independence, Mauritius has developed from a low-income, agricultural-based economy to a middle-income diversified economy with growing industrial, financial services, and tourist sectors. For most of the period, annual growth has been in the range of 5% to 6%. This remarkable achievement has been reflected in increased life expectancy, lowered infant mortality, and a much improved infrastructure. Sugarcane is grown on about 90% of the cultivated land area and accounts for 25% of export earnings.

The living standard in Mauritius is among the highest in the African region, and there is almost full employment in the country. Mauritius politics are thoroughly democratic, and governments have changed only by constitutional means.
