[POSTPONED] Princely mission to Senegal

Due to the Coronavirus threat, we have decided to postpone the Princely mission. We will keep you informed of the new date when it has been decided.

Do you want to develop your business in Atlantic West Africa?  From 7 to 10 June 2020, join the Belgian delegations during our Prince’s mission in Dakar, which we are organising together with the Belgian Foreign Trade Agency, Awex, FIT and FPS Foreign Affairs.

After recognising the attractiveness of the Senegalese market and finally opening an agency in Dakar at the beginning of the year, we invite you to join us for the Prince’s mission in Dakar to discover the numerous commercial possibilities offered in eight key sectors by this West African market.  

A multi-sectoral mission in which female entrepreneurship will feature prominently

Under the leadership of Her Royal Highness Princess Astrid, this multi-sectoral mission will highlight, in particular, the participation of women in the economic development between our two continents. The Women in Business cluster will provide you with the opportunity to participate in the seminar “Female entrepreneurs: drivers of economic and human growth between Europe and Africa”.

Practical information

This multi-sectoral mission will focus on the following sectors:

  • Agrifoods and agriculture
  • Construction, infrastructure, transport and logistics
  • Eco-construction
  • The green economy and green energy
  • Healthcare, biotechnology and medical science
  • The aerospace sector
  • The smart city
  • The audio-visual sector

Registration fees:

  • €100.00 for SMEs;
  • €300.00 for companies with more than 250 employees.

The travel agency BCD MEETINGS & EVENTS has been selected to manage all of the logistics of the mission (flights, hotels, local transfers, etc.).

Although you are free to contact another travel agency, to best prepare for the mission and ensure that it runs smoothly, we recommend that you call BCD MEETINGS & EVENTS for your journey’s logistics.
