Mauritania Economic Outlook

  • The economy grew by an estimated 3.1% up from 2% in 2015 despite a sharp fall in the price of iron ore.
  • The economic outlook is more favourable in the short and medium term, thanks to higher projected industrial and mining output, good performances in agriculture and fisheries and continuing structural reform.
  • An improved business climate is vital for the emergence of a true local entrepreneurial class that can speed up industrialisation and create decent jobs thereby reducing poverty and social inequality.
