- DTIS update
- WTO accession
Mauritania was one of the three pilot countries selected in 2001 for the implementation of the Integrated Framework (IF) pilot projects. In this context, a Diagnostic Trade Integration Study (DTIS) was conducted and validated in November 2001. The recommendations of the DTIS were included in Mauritania's 2003 Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper.
Subsequently, four Window II projects were implemented under the IF, which included: Support to the Chamber of Commerce; Export promotion; Support to handicraft exports; Project to increase ownership of trade strategy.
These projects under the IF Trust Fund supported the establishment of fishing cooperatives and organized training in the areas of marketing, export promotion and use of market information. A pilot unit for processing fish was operational at the end of the project and became a source of employment for artisanal fishermen. This initiative ensured the dissemination of processing best practices for fish exports.
In May 2007, Mauritania prepared its trade strategy for 2007‐2015 with the support of UNDP.
