As usual, the Council of Ministers was held this Wednesday, May 15, 2024. Among many other subjects discussed during the meeting, the President of the Republic placed emphasis on the craft sector which is one of the “engines of economic and social life in Senegal”.

The Head of State indicated that crafts contribute to the development of young people’s learning and the popularization of national know-how. In this sense, President Diomaye asked the Government to accelerate the “legal and financial reforms necessary to place crafts in the dynamics of endogenous economic growth and national entrepreneurship leading to social progress”.

For the President of the Republic, State policies in the craft sector and the resulting industrial strategy must fit harmoniously into the “PROJECT” of a sovereign, just and prosperous Senegal. Moreover, the Head of State informed the Council that he will soon receive, with the Prime Minister and the Minister in charge of crafts, the presidents of the fourteen (14) Chambers of Trades of Senegal.

Referring to the question of the economic and social valorization of our cultural heritage, the Head of State noted that this first involves the “promotion of our national languages, our cultural values, as well as literary and artistic creation. “. The President of the Republic, moreover, indicates the press release “magnified the contribution of all our artists, men and women of culture in the social stability and international influence of Senegal”.

Bassirou Diomaye Faye, “first Protector of Arts and Letters of Senegal in view of the Constitution”, asked the Government to pay particular attention to the aspirations of actors in the cultural sector in all its components but also to ensure the capitalization and development of literary, cultural and artistic expression throughout the national territory.

The President of the Republic also returned to the imperative of safeguarding buildings, edifices and historic sites throughout the national territory by setting up a new system for the preservation of historical heritage, the classification of which must be updated and popularized.

He called for the consensual definition with the stakeholders of a “coherent and controlled national cultural agenda capable of positioning Senegal as a true international cultural hub”.
