Th e government is engaged in realizing a rapid success in the agriculture sector, with 350,000 acres of land suitable for cultivation, and outstanding opportunities in cattle farming most notably in beef meat and camel meat processing. Agriculture Minister Correra Issaga`s main challenge is to reduce the country’s need to import basic food products, fi ght poverty, and avoid a rural exodus. “We need to find an alternative to traditional agriculture.

 “We need to find an alternative to traditional agriculture. A solution is to move into agricultural industry. I want local and international experts to combine their eff orts and work together at this.”
Th e need for essential food products following the drought led to the creation of import-export company Sonimex. It is connected with world markets to bring products such as rice, wheat, flour, sugar, and milk into the country and regulating distribution prices and stocks of mass consumption foods. Since liberalization of the import sector in 1989, Sonimex has also supported the country’s
agricultural base, as General Director Moulaye El Arbi Ould Mohamed details. “Due to its strong presence in the interior of the country, Sonimex can help farmers commercialize their products. We have also fortifi ed their capabilities by importing fertilizers for the past 6 years.” Th e country’s Minister of Industry and Trade Sid Ahmed Ould Raiss says consolidation, a stronger investment
strategy, and several new projects have already put Mauritania on the right path. “We will focus on growing sectors, specially the private industries, and try to access international markets within the World Trade Organization framework.” Through its membership of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) known in French as CEDEAO, Mauritania is currently discussing an economic partnership with the EU. It will ultimately allow the country to export “made in
Mauritania” branded products that adhere to international standards, such as its excellent camel cheese. “The objective is precisely to link our national economy to Europe through bilateral partnerships,” says Minister Raiss. As far as trade with the United States is concerned
he concludes that “there is an eff ort to be made for mutualdiscovery.

American enterprises not only have access to the Mauritanian market with its inexpensive labor, but also the sub-Saharan structure, the Maghreb market next door, and over 200 million consumers in ECOWAS.” Giving a Global Approach to Industrialization  and regulating distribution prices and stocks of mass consumption foods.
