If you have a supplier in PRC, you can ask him/her to issue an invitation letter to you. You can apply for a business M type. The required documents include your passport and copy of its data page, the application form affixed with a bareheaded photo taken recently, your valid entry permit to Mauritania, the invitation letter from your supplier, as well as bank statement.

If you don’t have a supplier in PRC, you can apply for a tourist L type and provide those documents containing the passport and its copy, the application and a passport-style photo, bank statement, round trip air tickets and hotel booking record, as well as an Invitation Letter of Duly Authorized Unit or a Confirmation Letter of Invitation issued by an authorized Chinese agency.

After that, submit the application to the embassy of PRC to apply for it.
