'Senegal and Canada enjoy a special relationship, showcased in Prime Minister Trudeau's visit to Africa last year, joined by the Chair of the Board of The Canada-Africa Chamber of Business. The opportuntiies are immense. I am proud of Senegal's role as a leading commercial partner to Canada's trade diversification agenda.' - Her Excellency, Ambassador Viviane Bampassy
'It is a great privilege to welcome a nation that Canada regards as a reference for democratic governance and sustainable economic development. Senegal's impressive growth averaging 6% for much of the past decade is reflection of unparallled opportunities in this incredible market'
