Madagascar, an island country in the Indian Ocean, is among the growing number of countries who recognise the important potential of their diaspora for development. In this perspective, the Malagasy Government decided to strengthen its ties with its citizens abroad and make diaspora affairs one of the pillars of the so-called economic diplomacy of the country. In 2015, a Directorate for Diaspora Affairs was created within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Following the creation of the directorate, MIEUX provided support to the Malagasy authorities to develop a comprehensive and inclusive Diaspora Engagement Policy in order to promote, foster and facilitate the participation of the Malagasy diaspora in the socio-economic development of the country.
