There is growing interest in better understanding the effects of Intellectual Property (IP) protection and innovation in Mauritius both on specific indicators of economic performance and on the economic development process more broadly. Mauritius moves towards a knowledge and digital economy, the transformation of the ICT industry into a key sector through innovation and creativity is seen as a national priority. Indeed, already considered as the third pillar of the economy, the ICT sector contributes significantly (5.7% of the GDP in 2016; around 750 ICT-BPO enterprises; over 23,000 persons employed) with value addition in several areas (Board of Investment, 2018). However, while the development of the Mauritian ICT sector has already benefitted from the insights of multiple studies, the Mauritius Research Council (MRC) expressed interest in undertaking a study on the role of Intellectual Property and innovation in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector in Mauritius. The objective is to assess the impact of IP on ICT innovation and the economic performance of ICT enterprises in the country.
