OPENING NEW MARKETS – MAURITANIA
In the third quarter of 2017, TPF GETINSA EUROESTUDIOS started the expansion of its business activities into another African country. The company successfully entered the Mauritanian market by securing three contracts with the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Hydraulics and Sanitation to provide consulting services related to water and environment projects.
Water resources are particularly important for agriculture and livestock farming in Mauritania, since a majority of the population depends on them for a livelihood. Despite this fact, millions of cubic metres of water are wasted during the rainy season due to the lack of collection and storage systems. TPF GETINSA EUROESTUDIOS is proud of its involvement in three projects that will contribute to increasing efficient use of Mauritania’s precious yet scarce water resources.
