New Cabo Verde & Senegal Shipping route

Minister of Foreign Affairs of Cabo Verde, Jorge Tolentino announced that the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) will finance the direct sea link between Cabo Verde (Cape Verde) and Senegal. The minister said direct shipping links were “a project that we have come to cherish and which has now been accepted and taken on by the President of Senegal, Macky Sall. The Cape Verdean authorities have systematically requested special treatment from all ECOWAS institutions to help tackle the underlying vulnerabilities of the country’s insularity and for it to become fully integrated in the ECOWAS region.
