Mauritania presents incredible market opportunities for investors and jobseekers in the oil, gas, mineral and fishing industries. Natural resources include fish, copper, iron ore, and gypsum. Agricultural products include dates, millet, sorghum, rice, corn, cattle, and sheep.
In general, Mauritania is one of the safest countries in Africa, and residents find it a welcoming, friendly, and peaceful place to be with beautiful desert landscapes. Most expats live in the capital city, Nouakchott. Being an Islamic country, Mauritania does not have much in the way of bars and alcohol is expensive, and there are very few restaurants; exploring the country’s natural and cultural wonders are probably the best activities to find in Mauritania.
Medical facilities in Mauritania are limited although the country is working to provide more and improve the healthcare system. Nouakchott offers the highest quality healthcare in the country, with many doctors who mostly practice in private practices or clinics.
There are two international schools in the country for those looking to send their children to private schools.
With 15 years of recruitment experience in Africa, CA Global places highly skilled local, Diaspora, and expatriate professionals in mid- to high-level positions across a wide range of sectors. Go to our Africa Jobs portal to view the latest Mauritania jobs.
