Moka

Moka is a town in Mauritius. It's also the home to the University of Mauritius, the Mahatma Gandhi Institute and the Mauritius Broadcasting Corporation.

Schools in Moka include Le Bocage International School, Mahatama Gandhi Institute,Mahatma Gandhi Secondary School, St. Mary Roman Catholic School and Ecole du centre.

Other important institutions in Moka are the:

  • Agricultural Marketing Board (AMB) which stocks vegetables (mainly potatoes) for local consumption
  • Subramaniam Bharati Eye Centre (AKA Moka Eye Hospital) which is the country's only specialized eye hospital.
  • Catholic Church

Moka is centrally located in Mauritius and as such has experienced a real estate development boom in the past few years. This was mainly encouraged by the development of the CyberCity some kilometers away in Ebene. Another contributing factor to this property business was the fact that since Mauritius will not benefit from preferential prices for its sugar by the European Community and World Trade Organization, sugar estates quickly started real estate business units that would convert the land under sugar cane culture to residential lands. In less about two years (starting 2004) Moka has seen 5 property estate developments.
