The Honorary Fellowship Award was conferred on Mr Basant Roi GCSK on 25 March 2010.
Mr Basant Roi studied for a BA Honours degree in Economics at the University of Delhi and a Master degree in Economics from the Delhi School of Economics with specialization in Monetary Economics and International Economics.
He joined the Bank of Mauritius in April 1976 as Research Officer and was promoted to Assistant Director of the Research Department in 1984. In 1988, he was appointed Director of Research. He was all along singularly involved in the formulation of monetary policy and exchange rate policy of the country. Four major areas of development had marked his career.
First, he was the only person, apart from the then Governor and the Managing Director of the Bank, heavily involved with the negotiations of stand by arrangements with the IMF. He monitored and reported the observance of performance criteria on a monthly basis to the IMF over the period between the end of 1979 to August 1986. The two devaluations of the rupee, one in October 1979 and the other in September 1981 had provided him with an insight into how an effective exchange rate management of the rupee by the Bank of Mauritius is so critically important for a highly open economy like ours.
Second, he welcomed the pegging of the rupee to a trade - weighted basket of currencies representative of our trade pattern in February 1983. He managed the exchange rate of the rupee until July 1994 when the Exchange Control Act was suspended.
Third, he got a first hand feeling of the palpitations of our financial markets and the pulses of the Mauritian economy in the gradual liberalization of exchange control in the 1980s and of the shift from direct to indirect monetary control.
Fourth, he had written the first sort of concept paper for “offshore banking” in Mauritius at the request of the Prime Minister, late Dr the Hon. Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam in 1979 to the Bank of Mauritius, a project that was implemented in 1989. He was deeply involved in the development of Mauritius as a full blown and prosperous offshore banking and offshore business centre.
He was appointed Governor of the Bank of Mauritius in December 1998. He was guided by the overriding objective of achieving sustained monetary stability (price stability) and sustained financial stability (profitable, sound and strong financial institutions). In the eight years he served as Governor, the average inflation rate for Mauritius was one of the lowest, if not the lowest, in the post-independence period. The regulatory and supervisory framework for all deposit–taking institutions was overhauled and modernised so much so that our banking industry grew stronger and stronger over the years. Amongst other things like having given the Bank of Mauritius an unparalleled increase in its foreign exchange reserves so far through appropriate monetary tightening, the Mauritius Automated Clearing and Settlement System was set up. The Mauritius Credit Information Bureau, an extremely useful instrument for achieving and sustaining financial stability, was established. The Bank of Mauritius Act and the Banking Act were for the first time since 1966 completely overhauled and modernised to face the challenges of the globalised world economy and integrated world financial system.
In 2004, he was awarded the highest national distinction of the land, the Grand Commander of the Star and Key of the Indian Ocean, GCSK for his outstanding contributions to the development of our financial sector.

M. Anwar Joonas, le président de la MEF, a affirmé que cette publication peut être utilisée comme un guide de carrière dans différents écoles, collèges, universités et d’autres parties prenantes de l’éducation mais aussi l’intégrer aux activités de la formation au sein de la MEF. « Les jeunes doivent pouvoir avoir des rêves et se fixer des objectifs et de surcroît prendre des actions pour les transformer en réalité en gardant un esprit de créativité et d’innovation. Ils doivent avoir soif de connaissance durant toute leur vie, et surtout, être flexible et faire face aux défis de la vie », a avancé le président de cette fédération. Selon lui, la MEF croit fermement en la nouvelle génération qui représente le futur et se sent honorée d’être partie prenante de cette initiative qui assistera les jeunes en termes de développement de capacités et d’aptitudes.
M. Vikram Jeetah, président de la MIM, a souligné qu’avec les changements dynamiques, les jeunes doivent s’aligner au niveau des tendances et des demandes grandissantes d’une économie nouvelle. Le tourisme médical, le Land Based Oceanic Industry, et le Sea Food and Marine Industry sont des secteurs émergents. A cet effet, les jeunes doivent avoir accès aux informations sur les opportunités d’emplois existantes.
M. Michael Bootle, président du Rotary Club de Port-Louis, a fait un exposé de la contribution de ce club de service au sein de la société, notamment en incitant les écoliers et les collégiens à participer à des activités éducatives extracurriculaires afin d’aiguisé leurs connaissances. Il a rendu hommage à Mme. Aisha Oozeer, Mme Susan Ah-Chuen et le Dr. Otto Klang. Ces trois personnes ont été d’un apport considérable à la réalisation du manuel ‘Career Prospects – The Way Forward For the Youth’.
M. Dharambeer Gokhool, ministre de l’Education a salué l’initiative de la MEF pour avoir revue ce manuel. Sa publication est bienvenue à un moment où il y a une disparité évidente sur le marché de travail et où les employeurs éprouvent des difficultés à recruter de la main d’œuvre qualifiée alors qu’il y a des milliers de mauriciens sans emploi. Le ministre a aussi mentionné que les initiatives pour la promotion de l’éducation et de la formation sont primordiales à la création et à la transmission du savoir-faire. Selon lui, ce sont des facteurs déterminants pour développer le potentiel de tout un chacun pour être innovateur.
