Small Island Developing State of Mauritius
The government of Mauritius has put effort into developing their online portal and their telecommunication infrastructure. Their website www.gov.mu offers citizens an exhaustive list of e-services segmented by target persons (139 services), by domain (59services), by ministry (53 services), by department (13services), and parastatally (14 services).
Even though Mauritius is one of the Small Island Developing States with a small land area and population, its economy has developed since independence from a small-scale focus based on agriculture, to a diversified middle-income economy. This increased the government’s potential to invest in infrastructure, communications, and education, which raised the Human Capital Index of Mauritius, and in turn raised its ranking in the regional EGDI.
The government portal also offers citizens a platform for e-participation through chat rooms, a media library, blogs and discussion forums.
