"I had the honor, along with the importers, to be received today by His Excellency the President of the Republic, Mr. Mohamed Ould Cheikh El Ghazouani.

The meeting was an opportunity to review the price situation and the means likely to secure the supply of the national market with quality products at affordable prices for citizens.

We have felt His Excellency’s clear vision about the price issue and his constant concern for the duty to fulfill all the conditions to guarantee citizens' access to basic food products at appropriate prices.

We reiterated to the President of the Republic our strong commitment and our sincere desire to work seriously at the level of importers to apply these recommendations to ensure market stability, secure supplies, and work in a committed patriotic spirit to address all price fluctuations.

During the meeting, His Excellency the President of the Republic underlined the dire need to achieve self-sufficiency so that our markets no longer remain at the mercy of price fluctuations at the international level.

The President of the Republic stressed the importance of the private sector as the main lever for national economic growth. He reviewed the great efforts undertaken in this direction, calling for them to be further strengthened and to achieve the necessary acceleration to remedy the various structural imbalances observed in the development process of our country since independence, in particular those related to the food security.

The meeting was attended by Messrs. Mohamed Ahmed Ould Mohamed Lamine, Director of the Cabinet of the President of the Republic and El Hacen Ould Zein, Officer in Charge of Special Duties at the Presidency of the Republic.
