Senegal's New Economic Policy

Joined by Canadian government and business leaders, our first forum with Senegal presented the new economic policy for one of Africa's most respected markets: Senegal’s economic growth has been among the highest in Africa between 2014 and 2018, remaining above 6% annually. GDP growth was 5.3% in 2019.
The highest levels of leadership in Senegal presented and discussed the country's new economic policy - seeking to increase the incredible returns on investment and trade in the post-COVID recovery.
