Mauritania, by virtue of the level of its GDP per capita, is a member of the group of low income countries. It is a country whose economy still depends mainly on two export commodities, namely fish and iron. Future diversification of the economy, with the addition of petroleum, may promote the creation of additional resources.Since January 2001, Mauritania has implemented a strategic framework on poverty reduction (SFPR) to the year 2015, considered as a benchmark for the public policy agenda as a whole.
