Agribusiness Investment Opportunities in Senegal
Host: Acting Deputy Chief of Mission/USAID Mission Director Susan Fine
Date, time, time zone: Tuesday, December 16, 2014; 11:00 a.m. EST (16:00 local)
Brief Description: The Government of Senegal has placed agriculture and agribusiness at the center of its Emerging Senegal Plan that aims to increase private sector investment to boost economic growth. Senegal joined the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition in 2013 and mobilized private sector commitments for investment in agro-industry. With U.S. support, the government is implementing reforms to improve the business climate and developing new land tenure models to facilitate private investment in agribusiness. Senegal has also played a leadership role on promoting economic integration of the 300 million Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). This Direct Line program will provide an overview on these initiatives and opportunities for investment in agriculture and agribusiness.
