Senegal: EU encourages security and competitiveness

Last Friday in Dakar, the Senegalese government and the EU signed three financial agreements worth over 15 billion CFA Francs for domestic security, transport and the Programme for Competitiveness in West Africa (PCAO). The agreements were signed by Finance Minister Amadou Bâ and the EU ambassador to Senegal, Joaquin Gonzalez-Ducay. “The first injection, of 6.5 billion CFA Francs, is earmarked for cooperation on internal security between Senegal and the European Union,” said Amadou Bâ. He clarified that the objective of this first agreement, which falls under the remit of the 11th European Development Fund (FED), is to “prevent and reduce internal and external destabilising factors for the Senegalese state in order to protect its development potential”. The initiative, according to Mr Bâ, will cover the entire country and will improve the efficiency, effectiveness and accountability of the internal security services when combatting significant threats. The second agreement, valued at 2.6 billion CFA Francs, will finance a regional project for transport governance, which aims to “contribute to the improvement of the sustainability and security of the regional road transport system”.
