Thanks to the discovery of potentially vast gas reserves, Mauritania is a fast developing country, which offers real opportunities for organisations interested in entering and developing new markets. The government has ambitious plans to develop the country’s infrastructure, reform its education system and establish and support industry and commerce, and is keen to work with UK companies to deliver them.

 MBBC was formed to build strong, mutually beneficial relationships between the UK and Mauritania. These will enable leading UK businesses across a wide range of sectors and industries to get involved with major projects and access new markets and customers. It is a challenging environment and the MBBC aims to provide the support and guidance its members need to succeed.
