Government of Madagascar (GOM) welcomes foreign investment in order to contribute to the country’s development. However, political turmoil, weakness in the judicial system and the banking sector, the high cost and low quality of electric power, a lack of transparency in decision-making, limited road, rail and port infrastructure and the high cost of air transport make investing in Madagascar a challenge.
According to the Economic Development Board of Madagascar (EDBM), few foreign investors showed investment interest in 2012 and the country is still encouraging more to come and invest.
There is no requirement restricting the mobility of foreign investors. The regime for visas, residence, and work permits is neither discriminatory nor excessively onerous. Since the creation of the EDBM, processing of residence and work permits has been streamlined.
