Mauritanians Train for Fishing Sector Jobs

The Mauritanian government launched an ambitious project to train and recruit some 2,000 young people for jobs in the fishing sector.

The first group of young people graduated from the new Small-Scale and Continental Fishing Training Centre (CASFMPAC) in Nouadhibou on November 17th.

Training Minister Mohamed Ould Khouna, who attended the event, said that his department recognised the importance of fishing in reducing unemployment.

Centre director Cheikh Bouya Ould Cheikhna noted that young women had also received job training. The World Bank is supporting the project.
