The Government with a new mandate has reconstituted the Ministries – Ministry of Arts & Culture regained back and we have new ministries: Ministry of Social Integration and Economic Empowerment, Ministry of Tertiary Education, Science, Research and Technology and the ‘re-branded’ Ministry of Gender Equality, Child Development and Family Welfare.

1. In my personal opinion, I am not so happy with the new Finance Minister. Well there was political strategy behind it but I would not want the Minister who left the poor economic situation of the country in 2005 and then rejoice the gains of  economic reforms in 2010.

2. Then secondly, the ICT Minister who is an attorney at law and first time Minister, I am sure that he will be able to deliver an output for the Mauritian IT/BPO industry as would had done the MMM candidate.

3. Finally the New Ministry of Tertiary Education, well let’s wait and see if the situation of academic institutions (private also) improves and we see a new wind of change at the University of Mauritius with our new Vice-Chancellor

What’s your opinion?
