Summary

The open economy of Mauritius is particularly susceptible to the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Domestic corporate debt is also considered to be quite high and external risk is higher for the banking system and country than regional peers. External exposure therefore appears to be the key differentiator in HY performance.

Additional Information

The IMF are expecting the Mauritian economy to contract by 6.8% in 2020. This is a significant decline in comparison to the regional average and reflects the indirect and direct risks of the COVID-19 pandemic on a significantly open economy, with a relatively high dependence on tourism, manufacturing and trade.
