Chinese Community in Mauritius Doing Well but Declining

The New African magazine published on 15 June 2015 an article titled "Meet Africa's Most Integrated Chinese Community" by James Wan, a Mauritian journalist. 

The Chinese community in Mauritius is one of the oldest and more culturally integrated Chinese communities in Africa.  It constitutes 2-3 percent of the 1.3 million people who live in Mauritius, but it is a dwindling community.  Many younger Sino-Mauritians are studying overseas and then remaining there.  The community has done well economically; 25 of the top 100 companies in Mauritius are owned by Sino-Mauritians but the older owners are concerned that the younger generation is not remaining to take over the business.
