    “With this mission, we are marking the Polish presence in West Africa. We hope that this new opening in the Polish-Senegalese relations will be a strong impulse for their future development,” said MFA Undersecretary of State Katarzyna Kacperczyk, who visited Senegal between April 8th and 9th.

    The Polish delegation headed by Deputy Minister Kacperczyk came to Senegal with a group of nearly 40 Polish companies interested in establishing new business contacts on the Senegalese market. Among the most important entrepreneurs were the representatives of the mining, chemical, food, aviation and finance industries.

     

    “Currently, Senegal is the market with a small Polish business presence. However, the presence of such players as the Azoty Group allows us to look with optimism to the activity of companies from other industries. This visit will certainly make it easier for many entrepreneurs to enter the Senegalese market,” stressed the deputy chief of Polish diplomacy.

     

    During her visit, Deputy Minister Kacperczyk was received by Senegalese President Macky Sall, with whom she talked about the possibilities of expanding Polish-Senegalese trade. The deputy chief of the MFA stressed that evolving economic relations with a strong European economy such as Poland has become an inherent part of the Senegal Emergent Plan, which stipulates co-operation with European countries. “Poland and Polish entrepreneurs welcome the emerging possibilities of working together with the Senegalese government. President Macky’s personal involvement in this plan proves it stands good chances of succeeding,” said the deputy minister.

     

    The importance that Senegal pays to relations with Poland is evidenced by a promise of Mankeur Ndiaye, the chief of Senegalese diplomacy, to open a diplomatic post in Warsaw in the near future.

     

    The two-day trade mission was organised by the MFA in collaboration with the Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency. The visit included meetings with the Senegalese government administration (among others, at the ministry of economy and finance, the ministry of trade and entrepreneurship, and the ministry of energy, mines and industries), as well as taking part in the Polish–Senegalese Economic Forum, organised jointly with APIX, a Senegalese government agency.
