Message of
Dr Kaviraj Sharma Sukon

Chairperson of MRIC

"Everyone can innovate - Everyone should innovate"

We are happy to note that MRIC has successfully taken innovation to the doorsteps of everybody through the National Innovation Challenge that was aired on the national television over several months. I was pleasantly surprised to see people of all age groups eagerly sharing their views about the innovative products and services that the participants had prepared with a lot of care. The important message that we have been able to disseminate through our activities and projects is that everyone can innovate. With the limited natural resources, every citizen of the Republic of Mauritius must contribute to maintain our country competitive. 

Les Assises de la Recherche et Innovation was another opportunity that MRIC provided to stakeholders to focus on research and innovation because it is the tool par excellence to overcome the constraints of the small size of our nation. This is vital for our survival. MRIC will continue to identify and support activities that would allow Mauritius to move up the economic value chain while building a strong base of resource persons, scientists, engineers and technologists who would help to drive economic and enterprise transformation. 

I invite everyone to contribute to strengthen the foundations of Mauritius as a knowledge-based, innovation-driven economy. 


Dr K S Sukon

Chairperson of MRIC
