Mauritania Liberalizes Transportation!

Apparently, the new Mauritanian government is ending the quasi-monopoly in the transportation sector. The press release doesn't really say how the sector is currently organized or how it will be re-organized, but, you know, you take what you can get.

In other Mauritanian news, the minister of oil is visiting Singapore this week to inspect an oil tanker equipped with modern analytical equipment which is undergoing maintenance and will store and analyze the first oil extracted from the Chinguiti field (comes online in 2006!). The field was discovered by an Australian prospecting firm, Woodside, in 2002.
