General manager’s message
The first public commercial port south of the Sahara and a crossroads between Europe,
Africa and the two American continents, the Autonomous Port of Nouakchott known
as the Friendship Port (PANPA) enjoys a very privileged geographical position.
Its location 15 km from Nouakchott, as well as its opening to the 4 main axes of the
country, make it a clear and secure port.
The ideal positioning of this port, combined with its surface area of 14 672 ha,
constitutes one of the major and multiple advantages of this port establishment.
