Overseas Market Workshop to Senegal - Registration of Interest
1 - 7 November 2020, 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.
