Abstract: The aim of this research paper is to understand the relationship between human development index and competitiveness of Mauritius. Mauritius has performed well (economic growth of more than 3%) despite the global economic recession over the past years. Mauritius ranks high in the global competitiveness index and human development index. The findings illustrate that there is a direct link and correlation between the HDI and the economic growth. The implications are that a country should invest in human capital development for improving economic growth. However, there are so many economic variables that may affect the economic growth and therefore difficult to quantify exactly the extent to which each variable is determinant.
