Apart from oil and mining, the industrial sector has found it diffi cult to take root on Mauritanian soil.With 80 percent of the country covered by desert, and the aft er eff ects of drought in the 60s and 70s, previous governments have struggled to set employment dynamics in motion or to create value for Mauritanian products.
