The Central Bank of Mauritania (French: Banque centrale de Mauritanie, BCM) is the central bank of Mauritania, in northwest Africa. The bank is located in the capital Nouakchott, just south of the presidential palace. Its current governor is Cheikh El Kebir Moulay Taher.


The bank was created by acts of the legislature of Mauritania, in 1973, 1974 and 1975.[2] It was established by President Moktar Ould Daddah after he withdrew Mauritania from the French-dominated monetary consortium, the Communauté Financière Africaine.[3]
