In July 2019, once again Integrity Metal Works was honored with the award of Small and Medium enterprises (SMEs) in promoting economic growth and development which is universally recognised. SMEs in Mauritius contribute around 40 per cent to GDP and employ over 280,000 people (representing 54% of total employment) in some 125,500 establishments.
The objective of Government is to transform Mauritius into a forward looking, economically vibrant and innovative country. In this regard, the SME sector has been clearly positioned as the future engine of our economic growth. In fact, the most ambitious goal of the Government as outlined in the last three Budget Speeches is to make the SME sector the backbone of the economy
in the years to come. In line with its vision to foster entrepreneurship, the Business and Enterprise Division of the Ministry of Business, Enterprise and Cooperatives is launching the SME Excellence Awards 2019, with a view to recognizing the achievements of micro, small and medium enterprises to the adoption of best business practices leading to excellence in key components of a business such as growth, financials, improved marketing, productivity and export, quality assurance and green concepts.
