The Board of Investment (BOI) is the national investment promotion agency of the Government of Mauritius with the mandate to promote and facilitate investment in the country. It is the first point of contact for investors exploring business opportunities in Mauritius and the region. BOI also assists investors in the growth, nurturing and diversification of their business.

With a view to facilitating the implementation of investment projects and, more importantly, to continuously improve the investment and business climate, BOI works in close collaboration with Government bodies, institutions and private sector companies. Mauritius capitalized on the sale of strategic coastal land to foreigners through the Property Development Scheme programmes of the Board of Investment.[1]

BOI has an important role of policy advocacy to continuously improve the competitiveness of Mauritius.

The Board of Investment accompanies investors looking at opportunities in Africa.

The Board of Investment (BOI) has been awarded the prestigious ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Certification on 3 December 2013.
