On behalf of the organisers we would like to thank the Government of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, the sponsors, exhibitors, delegates, speakers and service providers for their contribution to making MAURITANIDES 2016 a success.
The event featured 500 delegates, 11 sponsors, 60 exhibitors and 1500 participants. Despite the turbulent backdrop of vacillating commodity prices which has effected everyone involved in Mauritania’s extractive industries, we are very pleased that there was a diverse and significant turnout for the event. Mauritania is a country full of mining and hydrocarbon potential which will come to fruition in the forthcoming years. MAURITANIDES is an important part of the promotion of the aforementioned resources, already in its fourth edition. We are all looking forward to seeing at the next edition an industry upturn, the realisation of projects showcased in 2016 and the continuance of good governance in Mauritania. We are pleased to summarise the presentations and the discussions in this report and we hope that the recommendations will be taken on board by all stakeholders.
We look forward to welcoming everyone back to Mauritania in 2018.
