Taking a closer look at a particular country in the report, for example Mauritius, one finds a country of 1.3-million people, rating well on the democracy index, which is managing to keep corruption levels at bay and is high on the best-countries-for-business index. This ranks it as a favourable location in the SADC region in which to do business.
Mauritius, with 58.6% of the population urbanised, intense mobile phone usage at 142 phones per 100 people, internet access with 46.2 users per 100 people and a real GDP annual growth rate of 4.0%, offers potential for investors and developers. Asking rents are being achieved within the retail market with average yields of 7.75% - 8% being evident. The average yield for offices is generally a bit higher at 8.5% - 9% and demand within the market is forecast to be stable with supply increasing over the next six months.
