Mauritius has a well-established network of Investment Promotion and Protection Agreements (IPPAs) with countries around the globe, including with over 20 African countries, which offer risk mitigation possibilities to investors, such as:
- Free repatriation of investment capital and returns and a guarantee against expropriation;
- A most favoured nation rule with respect to treatment of investors;
- Compensation for losses in case of war, armed conflict or riot and arrangements for the settlement of disputes between investors and the contracting states.
