According to Us official figures, total two-way trade between Mauritius and the United States was valued at $227.7 million in 2008 and US exports to Mauritius were valued at $51.3 million, a 3 percent increaseNot only that, but the U.S. has direct investments of $2.9 billion in the island. So it appears that our trade representative's meeting is much more significant than I had originally thought.

Trade With Mauritius
