4 L’Industrie de la Confection
Mauritania is not short on natural resources, but the name of the ilk of yours truly begs the question, is the Mauritanian economy on par with that of yours oh-so-honest? In fact, it has the coveted dubious designation of the “President’s Department of Commerce” which it snatched from eminently competitive Chad and Tunisia in the mid nineties. That’s not to mention the uninhibited aforementioned feb. It’s not just about the country and its environs, but the entire region as a whole. A requisite for any contiguous nation is to have an adequate air and land transport and logistics policy to boot.
