Investment Climate

The investment climate of the country is continuing to improve offering significant benefits for medium to large scale enterprises to operate with ease in the country. The cost effective environment including labour, real estate and construction costs in many sectors create a lower initial start-up cost for the businesses. There are benefits such as affordable land lease prices for the industrial and tourism sector , reasonably priced office space rental and relatively low farmland prices. Quick customs clearance times and competitive transportation costs for a number of destinations are also beneficial to new and existing businesses. The Government has facilitated the set up of export processing zones (EPZ) that raise the productivity levels of industries and facilitate the establishment of businesses. Madagascar has 17 seaports and 55 airports all around the country to facilitate smooth logistics.

Madagascar is certainly an area of interest to be explored, not only for its natural beauty, but for the many opportunities afforded to skilled professionals and business people.
