Economical Influences on the Mauritian Rupee
If you are considering converting AUD to MUR, it’s good to get a snapshot of how the economy may influence the Mauritian rupee.
Since achieving independence in 1968, Mauritius has managed to transform from a small agricultural-based economy to a diversified upper middle-income economy.1
With growing industrial, financial and tourism sectors, Mauritius has achieved steady growth over the past decades resulting in increased longevity, more streamlined income distribution and improved infrastructure.1
Mauritius relies heavily on its exports for economic growth; however appreciation of the Mauritian rupee often negatively affects the export industry due to competition with cheaper markets.2
