About Mauritania

A state in West Africa. It borders on Algeria, Senegal, Mali and the Saharan Arab Democratic Republic. It is washed by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

Mauritania derives its main income from mining and services, although about half of the adult population works in agriculture. Tourism is developing slowly due to poorly developed infrastructure.
