Get to know Senegal: sales market and business opportunities

Thinking to enter the West African market? Senegal is certainly an interesting market for European investors and exporters to explore. For many years now, it has been experiencing sustained economic growth in many sectors. Learn all about some very interesting sectors and business opportunities in Senegal during a webinar on May 25, from 10 am to 12 pm.

In recent years, the Senegalese authorities have been working on a series of major reforms in order to stimulate (international) trade and attract investment. The government’s Sénégal Émergent plan is currently in its second phase, which aims to support and develop the private sector.

In preparation for its princely mission in 2022 (originally planned for 2020), you can delve into the Senegalese market during this webinar.

Realize your export ambitions

The webinar will be hosted by Ivan Korsak, our local Attaché in Dakar.

He will first introduce you to Senegal’s commercial assets, followed by tips on how to best position a company or product in the open Senegalese economy. In addition, three Belgian companies will share with you their commercial trading experience in Senegal.

Finally, we will also look at opportunities and best practices for project financing through Credendo, Finexpo and the European Investment Bank.
