MAURITIUS MTPA OFFICE LAUNCHES #MAURITIUS NOW CAMPAIGN Comments Off on MAURITIUS MTPA OFFICE LAUNCHES #MAURITIUS NOW CAMPAIGN 1185

The MTPA is pleased to announce the launch today, 27 October 2020, of the #MauritiusNow campaign, the inception, elaboration and implementation of which is the result of an unprecedented public-private collaborative approach. The campaign aims at restoring the image of Mauritius as a prime destination in the wake of the announcement of a phased reopening of the island’s borders.

In addition to safeguarding Mauritius’s brand positioning in our various markets, the campaign has been designed to boost the destination image and restore facts in the aftermath of the recent oil spill incident.

As ‘seeing is believing’, the campaign uses engaging visuals to remind the world that our island remains a prime tourist destination with pristine lagoons, lush vegetation and a welcoming population. A dedicated #MauritiusNow microsite is now live while its contents will also be disseminated via social media platforms, e-newsletters and blogs. The site includes live videos captured by webcams installed at key locations of the island to show the lagoons and beaches of Mauritius as they are NOW. This is complemented with spectacular drone footage shot over various parts of the island.

A series of videos portrays Mauritians in their daily activities showing that our island is a safe destination buzzing with life. The campaign also includes a series of reports on projects currently underway to rehabilitate the environment in the south eastern part of the island.

HOSPITALITY SENTIMENT SURVEY 2020 – DELOITTE Comments Off on HOSPITALITY SENTIMENT SURVEY 2020 – DELOITTE 751

The COVID-19 outbreak brought the world to a standstill, and the hospitality sector is one of the hardest hit economic sectors, mainly due to the introduction of travel restrictions. In Mauritius, the hospitality sector represents a fair share of the economy and one of many forecasts made about the impacts of the pandemic is a contraction of 20 percent, which will span over the next three to five years.

The sanitary crisis has also other unquantifiable impacts on the tourism sector including the loss of livelihoods of locals, loan repayment commitment of impacted businesses, low to no occupancy rates of hotels that may lead to temporary or permanent closure, and cash flow issues.

In the face of these hardships, the Government has come forward with certain supporting measures such as the extended Wage Assistance Scheme for tourism sector, prolonged loan moratoriums and low interest rates, the waiver of the rental payment of state lands for the upcoming financial year to tide over the liquidity issues. The Mauritius Investment Corporation (MIC) has also been set up to propose investments in eligible companies through different investment tools including both equity and quasi-equity instruments. 

The Deloitte Hospitality Survey report provides the market sentiment of the leaders from the major hotels, resorts, villas, and business hotels in Mauritius on the budgetary measures, the current challenges, key focus areas, and the way forward for hospitality industry in the current and post-COVID times. Whilst the report conveys what people shared during the survey, it also provides Deloitte’s point of view based on our global and industry expertise.
