Employers and their worries...

In my humble opinion I think that Mauritian employers are not convinced about the viability of the cybercity project and are worried about the future of the textile industry which they consider to be more vulnerable than the sugar sector.

I believe that employers are rather confident of the success of their own enterprises but quite alarmed on the prevailing economic situation nationally.

It is pointed out that if government decides to pay for the infrastructural cost of the LRT system, then LRT fares will be broadly comparable to bus fares. A study, made by economists in various government sectors, reveal that LRT operation costs will be less than Bus operation costs, because of lower energy consumption and cheaper labour cost and a longer service life of trains (compared to buses).

Government House


Government House consisted originally of a wooden hut covered with palm tree leaves.

The first British governor, Robert Townsend Farquhar, extended it still further. Today it is the official centre of government although parliamentary issues are debated in the modern Legislative Assembly Chamber behind ...
