While Mauritania has been hard hit by the Covid-19 crisis, it is charting a course to economic recovery and resilience. Leveraging its ample natural resources, Mauritania is working to add more value to traditional sectors such as mining, agriculture and fisheries, while also seeking new sources of revenue to achieve sustainable and inclusive growth and job creation, particularly for young people.

The Report: Mauritania 2022 Economic Briefing analyses opportunities and challenges in these strategic sectors in the post-pandemic period, and presents development prospects, key issues and market trends, with a particular focus on processing and renewable energy.

It includes a viewpoint with President Mohamed Ould Ghazouani; and interviews with Ousmane Mamoudou Kane, minister of economic affairs and promotion of productive sectors; Aïssata Lam, director-general of the Mauritania Investment Promotion Agency; and Gagan Gupta, CEO of Arise.
