The registration of CognisSys as a Mauritius company was no mere flag of convenience. This small group of islands is set to take a leading role in world trade, and we're excited to be part of it. In November, we will be delivering keynote presentations and guidance to a British trade delegation which focuses on connecting UK fintechs to a fast-evolving trade dynamo.
The ambitious reforms enacted by the Mauritian government is intended to place the country right at the forefront of compliant, regulated trade. given its trading relationships in emerging nations in Africa, it will become a vital financial hub, and a major force in opening up world markets to countries that desperately need access to mainstream currencies.
We've been consulting regularly with the Mauritian government and financial organisations, finding an enthusiastic appetite for new-wave solutions to driving compliant global trade. Their attitude is impressively open and forthright: they have a clear and defined vision to build a highly trusted, premier league financial hub whose impeccable credentials drive confidence in opening up new markets. But they also acknowledge the skills shortages that will grow under the progress of this ambitious project.
The UK Department for International Trade is to host a trade delegation to Mauritius from the 18th to 20th November this year. Bob Blower, CEO of CognisSys, will be among a panel of financial experts who will address the attendees, government officials and representatives from African organisations on the opportunities for training providers in Fintech, Blockchain and artificial intelligence.
"We hope to see a strong presence from UK technology trainers," Blower said. "Mauritius is going to be a major player, and it's genuinely exciting to be able to support the UKDIT in extending British expertise to our commonwealth partner."
Applications to join the delegation are open until 27th September. For more details, visit the Department for International Trade website
