August 26, 2020

Addressing the constraints to greater private sector development at national and sectoral levels is a critical element of the Government of Senegal plan to attain the goal of becoming an emerging market economy by 2035. It will also be a key element for post COVID-19 recovery. Greater private sector development is also a prerequisite for creation of good jobs and stimulating growth in the current uncertain environment.

The Senegal CPSD contributes to this effort by identifying policy actions and interventions in key sectors of the economy where short-to-medium term reforms could unlock investment and jobs.
