Prospects for one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, Mauritius, look bleak as its $tourism industry is set to grow only by 1.4 percent next year.

This is after it grew by an impressive 3.2 percent last year despite the Eurozone debt crisis which affected Europe, Mauritius’ main tourist market.

According to the Nairobi-based think tank, Analysis Africa, things are going to be bad next year because of a restricted air access policy, rigidity on market diversification and slow implementation of environmental protection initiatives.
