Bank of Mauritius wins MEA Business Award for Best Public Financial Services Institution – East Africa

The Bank of Mauritius has been voted Best Public Financial Services Institution – East Africa by the UK-based Middle East and Africa (MEA) Markets Magazine in its latest MEA Business Awards.

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’. Introduced in 2015, the MEA Business Awards are proudly a merit-based awards programme, where the jury’s decision is only influenced by the achievements of the business. The MEA Business Awards are an opportunity to pay tribute to those leaders and institutions ‘whose dedication and hard work have strived to sustain the region’s dominant status within the business world’.

Reacting to the announcement of this third MEA Business Award won by the Bank of Mauritius, Governor Yandraduth Googoolye stated that "This prestigious international award is testimony to the commitment of the Bank to stand as a reference in the region. It comforts me to see that our hard work and focus on innovation and best practices is being seen overseas. I am proud to be leading this organisation. I thank the Board Directors, the Management and the staff for their support. This is a well-deserved recognition for their dedication."

Last year, the Bank won the MEA Markets African Business Excellence Award as Best Financial Services Institution. In November 2018, the MEA Business Award for Leading Financial Institution of the Year 2018 – Africa was bestowed upon the Bank of Mauritius.
