Senegal has experienced strong economic growth from 2014-2018, with the services sector contributing the most to the country’s GDP. Agriculture remains the strongest sector of Senegal’s economy and economic expansion in the country has been driven by private sector investments, including, oil, energy, agriculture, and IT. Despite the impact of COVID-19 on the economy, the Senegalese economy is expected to rebound to an impressive 5% growth per year, driven by a boom in the agricultural sector.
