The UK-based Middle East and Africa (MEA) Markets Magazine has conferred upon the Bank of Mauritius its African Business Excellence Award as ‘Best Financial Services Institution 2019 – Mauritius’.
MEA Markets is a quarterly publication dedicated to ‘researching and publicising the major economic moves and events as they happen across the entire Middle East & Africa region’. The magazine is a window on ‘one of the world’s most powerful, innovative and influential business regions, and home to countless leading firms across numerous fast-moving industries, the Middle East & Africa’. The publication plays a prominent role ‘in shaping what happens throughout the wider global corporate community’.
The MEA Awards have been launched ‘to bring some much needed recognition and exposure to those firms which are shaping […], not only their industries and regions, but the global corporate community’.
This year’s African Business Excellence Awards winners have been selected following a rigorous and in-depth nomination, voting and judging process, carried out by the publication’s network of global industry experts and in-house team. All the award nominees have been ‘carefully scrutinised and judged on their performance over the past year, their willingness to innovate and even their competition to ensure that only the most deserving are named as one of the […] prestigious winners’.
For Bank of Mauritius Governor Yandraduth Googoolye, “The fact that the Bank has won such a coveted international award – the second accolade for this year – shows that the good work being done at all levels is shining beyond our shores. This accolade further cements the Bank’s image as a leading-edge central bank. I am proud to be leading this organisation. I thank the Board Directors, my Deputy Governors and the Bank’s staff for their commitment and support. This African Business Excellence Award is also theirs!’
