Market Research In Mauritania

Mauritania Profile:

  • Mauritania, officially the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, is a country in the Maghreb region of North-western Africa.
  • Mauritania’s extensive mineral resources include iron ore, gold, copper, gypsum, and phosphate rock, and exploration is ongoing for tantalum, uranium, crude oil, and natural gas.
  • Mauritania suffers from several human rights issues, including slavery, as at least 4% of the population (155,600 people) are enslaved.
  • Mauritania was the last country to legally abolish slavery; it only became punishable as a criminal act in 2007.
  • Investment in agriculture and infrastructure are the largest components of the country’s public expenditures.

Mauritania Economy:

  • Mauritania’s economy is dominated by extractive industries (oil and mines), fisheries and agriculture.
  • Half the population still depends on farming and raising livestock, even though many nomads and subsistence farmers were forced into the cities by recurrent droughts in the 1970s, 1980s, and 2000s.
  • Recently, GDP growth has been driven largely by foreign investment in the mining and oil sectors.
  • Mining is also a growing source of government revenue, rising from 13% to 30% of total revenue from 2006 to 2016.
  • The economy is highly sensitive to international food and extractive commodity prices. Other risks to the economy include its recurring droughts, dependence on foreign aid and investment, and insecurity in neighboring Mali, as well as significant shortages of infrastructure, institutional capacity and human capital.
