President Diomaye Faye boosts bilateral ties by emphasizing the exploitation of natural resources

Senegal maintains strong bilateral relations with Ghana, as evidenced by the notable presence of HE Nana Akufo-Addo during the inauguration ceremony of HE Bassirou Diomaye Diakhar Faye on April 2, recalled the government information office (Big ) via a press release published on the sidelines of the official visit of Senegalese President Bassirou Diomaye Faye to Nigeria and Ghana respectively on May 16 and 17.

On the political level: “the Dakar-Accra axis is solid, and the visits made by the leaders of the two countries in recent years have strengthened ties between the two nations. They also play an important role in strengthening cooperation within ECOWAS. The exploitation of natural resources, in particular oil and gas, is a major axis of cooperation between Senegal and Ghana, just as with Nigeria,” we can read in the Big press release.

Indeed, “the two countries seek to share their successful experiences in this area, in order to optimally exploit these resources which arouse great hopes among the populations. Ghana is also an important trading partner for Senegal in Africa,” adds the document.

In 2022, exports from Ghana to Senegal were estimated at 43.6 billion FCFA, representing 9.0% of the total. It is thus one of Senegal’s main suppliers in the ECOWAS zone, behind Nigeria (331.2 billion FCFA, or 68.7%) and Ivory Coast (72.8 billion FCFA, or 15 .1%).

These three countries alone represent 92.8% of Senegal’s imports from ECOWAS in 2022. On the other hand, Senegal’s exports to Ghana were estimated at 21.2 billion FCFA in 2022, compared to 14 billion FCFA in 2021. .
