Sažetak

Efficient ports are pivotal to the health of the nation’s economy. For instance, when the port of
Seychelles and Port Louis are put into consideration, it is noted that their respective ports are a major
source of revenue. In Seychelles, the economy depends largely on the revenue it derives from imports
and exports as well as tourism. In Mauritius, the port of Port Louis, handles the entire shipment that
comes in to the country via sea. This paper examines the efficiency levels of these ports using the
Malmquist based Data Envelopment Analysis. The review of literature lays further credence to the
importance of this paper as there has been a paucity of articles on the efficiency level of the port of
Port Louis and Port Victoria. Hence, this paper contributes to the growing body of knowledge on the
efficiency analysis of ports using Data Envelopment Analysis based Malmquist Productivity Index.
The period of examination is from 2008-2018. The results indicated that over the period of 2008 to
2018 the port of Port Louis achieved an annual average productivity gain of 0.91 whilst the Port of
Victoria achieved 0.95. The drivers of productivity being tilted more towards technology change.
