Among the leading sectors of Senegal:

The country plans to promote the integration of alternative energy sources, especially from solar energy. On the other hand, hydropower plants and water treatment plants must also be built to meet the needs of the entire population. Senegal is the ideal territory to install solar panels.
  • Infrastructure industry : Several public and private construction projects in the Greater Dakar region bring complete order books to construction companies and their suppliers. This situation should continue for some time, as the capital is growing quite fast and many actions will be taken to ensure that the infrastructure is adapted to the growth of the city.
