Senegal Economic Outlook

  • Senegal’s 2012 growth recovered to an estimated 3.7%, after a slowdown in 2011 when agriculture suffered. This should continue in 2013 and 2014 thanks to new infrastructure programmes.
  • The new president and government elected in 2012 have taken measures to improve good governance, which should boost the management of public resources.

AfDB and Senegal

The African Development Bank and Senegal have a long history of cooperation, dating back to 1972. Since that time, the Bank has financed 66 national projects in several sectors with a total investment of approximately US $ 1.1 billion or 532 billion CFA francs. Infrastructure projects make up 39.4 per cent of the Bank’s investment in Senegal, compared to 21.3 per cent for the social sector and 18.7 per cent for rural projects. In the private sector, the AfDB has financed four operations amounting to US $248 million.
