Statistics Mauritius has reviewed its previous estimations of economic growth for the third trimester of 2015.
The reviewed report, published yesterday, December 23, claims economic expansion is at 3.4%, as compared to a greater figure that was estimated before.
The decrease has been attributed to a decline in construction activities, a negative growth pertaining to sugar production, and a slower growth in the manufacturing industry, as well as other factors relating to accommodation and food service activities.
Furthermore, the growth expected to happen in 2016 will be at 3.9%. It appears that we will not be reaching 4% before 2017.
