Commission welcomes the full resumption of cooperation with Mauritania

The European Commission welcomes the Council Decision of 25 January 2010 fully re-establishing cooperation with Mauritania and confirms the resumption of enhanced political dialogue with Mauritania’s various political actors.This new decision means that the National Indicative Programme for Mauritania under the 10th European Development Fund (EDF),signed before the coup d’état of August 2008,can now be implemented. This programme has an envelope of € 156 million for activities in the areas of decentralisation and governance (€ 47m), infrastructure (€ 56m), possible general budget support (€ 40m), and other activities including in the area of management of migration flows (€ 13m). The indicative programme will be reviewed on the basis of the priorities of the new government and an analysis of effectiveness and needs.Other projects decided upon before the political crisis, totalling more than € 100m, were resumed in the second half of 2009.Existing contracts, particularly for road infrastructure work, had never been suspended, and nor had humanitarian aid activities.The European Investment Bank has resumed funding of new projects, notably in the mining sector (€ 75m).
