Liability insurance in Mauritania – too risky for global provider
28 January 2015
When a British fire safety training company won a major contract to deliver training and services at a gold mine in the Mauritanian Sahara, West Africa, their usual global insurer agreed to cover the business liability insurance required as a part of the tender.
However, the day they came to sign the contract the insurer pulled out because the venture was deemed too high risk.
