Balance of Payments

The balance of payments covers all transactions between a country's residents and non-residents involving exports and imports of goods and services, income flows; financial flows relating to claims on and liabilities to non-residents; and unilateral transfers such as gifts. In line with the requirements of the IMF’s SDDS to which Mauritius has subscribed, balance of payments statistics are disseminated on a quarterly basis no later than one quarter after the end of the reference period. As from the first quarter of 2018, the balance of payments statistics are compiled in accordance with the IMF's manual on Balance of Payments and International Investment Position Manual - Sixth Edition (BPM6).
