Western Sahara: Business Potential and Investment Prospects

Western Sahara has several promising industries and sectors for business investment and development. However— substantial infrastructure construction is required first.

The territory’s arid desert climate makes sedentary agriculture difficult, and it imports much of its food. The most common industries in Western Sahara are— manufacturing steel, mining, quarrying and oil extraction. Even though there have been these developments, business opportunities in the region have been limited to date despite its extensive on and offshore resources.

The Western Sahara Business sector comes with an opportunity – containing rich fishing grounds supporting Africa’s most productive fishing zone. Expanding port infrastructure would enable larger-scale commercial fishing and exports. A modernized fishing industry could become a leading economic sector.

Western Sahara’s phosphate rock mines are world-class containing an estimated 7 billion tonnes of reserves. Morocco currently administers these phosphate operations. Upgrading transportation links and mining infrastructure would increase this industry’s output and earnings potential.

Construction overall is an emerging industry as Western Sahara develops from minimal existing infrastructure. Major investments in roads, power grids, water systems and telecommunications are essential to enable business activity. This sector’s growth would also create many jobs.

Financial services, banking and insurance are underdeveloped in Western Sahara Business segment and lack regulatory frameworks. Introducing these commercial services would fill a major gap, facilitating business operations across sectors. It would also support increased international trade.

Oil exploration and renewable energy are two other fields with immense untapped potential. Offshore drilling for fossil fuels could have high rewards but requires massive capital spending to start production. Investing in solar, wind and other clean energy projects would help Western Sahara achieve energy self-sufficiency over the long term.

Realizing Western Sahara’s business potential hinges on upgrading inadequate infrastructure first. This would establish an environment conducive to commercial fishing, mining, construction, banking and energy projects over time. The prospects are promising once the territory develops further.
