Social dialogue is an essential ingredient for a vibrant democracy. We badly lack social dialogue in Mauritius. Therefore, what we need is effective dialogue between Government and members of the Civil Society. Decisions taken by governments certainly affect the population. So we cannot continue to ignore this dimension of democracy, called social dialogue.
Lessons from recent local events and activities bluntly broadcast the weaknesses of our government and the old-school approach. New expectations emphasize on exchange of views, communications and dialogue. So it is high time that government takes the opportunities and banks on governance and best practices.
