Mauritania’s Potential Value Chain Development under the AFCFTA
This trade brief explores the potential for AfCFTA-enabled regional value chain (RVC) development for Mauritania, a North African country but one that has moderate trade and value chain links with West African countries. It overviews Mauritania’s current global and regional value chain involvement and its effective offer to the AfCFTA. It then presents a data and visualisation-driven analysis of Mauritania’s current global and regional value chain participation, before drilling into its Africa-specific value chain involvement: both backward and forward. Finally, it offers several conclusions relating to the potential for Mauritania to both deepen and extend its intra-African regional value chain participation and potentially advance its industrialisation drive.
