Mauritius has expanded its offshore financial center, spurring construction of tower blocks in Port Louis, in recent years.

"We will realize a second economic miracle where citizens will reap the fruits of developments and prosperity," said Mr Jugnauth, seeking to address economic concerns among voters.
