    Facts about the Local Economy and Expat Life in Nouakchott

    Because of its close proximity to the equator, Nouakchott enjoys a hot climate all year round and mild winter night temperatures. It has a thriving economy, including service sector enterprises and the production of cement, salt, insecticides, embroidery and craft products as well as rugs and carpets. There is also a huge sugar refinery in the city. Nouakchott is also home to Nouakchott International Airport and a deep-sea port, opened in 1986. The city offers excellent educational facilities, boasting the University of Nouakchott and many primary and secondary schools, including the renowned TLC International School. A major building program, undertaken by the World Bank, took place from 2009 to 2013 to replace older housing with modern social dwellings; just one example of foreign investment in the city.
