Registration of Interest:Overseas Market Workshop to Senegal



Overseas Market Workshop to Senegal - Registration of Interest

Date: TBC, Senegal (Dakar)

This Overseas Market Workshop is jointly organised by Singapore Business Federation (SBF) and Enterprise Singapore (ESG).

Senegal enjoys a favourable geographic location, with a major seaport and easy access to European and North American markets. The country is the fourth largest economy in the West African subregion after Nigeria, Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire. It is also the second largest economy in Francophone West Africa behind Côte d’Ivoire. Growth in Senegal is expected to reach 6.8% in 2020 and 7% in 2021, boosted by public investment of the Senegal’s development strategy, the “Plan Sénégal Émergent” (PSE) and buoyant private consumption. Adoption of a single currency - the eco in the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), will also strengthen regional integration and reduce business transaction costs. 

 

Join the delegation to visit Dakar - the economic and political capital of Senegal to learn about the latest business and investment opportunities.
