Advertising Media & Trade Promotion


There are few qualified advertising agencies in Mauritania. What advertising exists is done in Arabic and French through newspapers, magazines, radio, and TV. However, as stated above, most buyers do not read newspapers or magazines. For those companies and distributors that are interested in using newspapers to advertise their products, there are several options. There are currently about 30 newspapers published in Mauritania, although only a dozen are published with regularity, and only two private newspapers are published daily. The most prominent newspapers are as follows:
