Pretoria - South Africa and Senegal have agreed on the need to unlock the economic potential between the two countries through economic cooperation that includes industrial and technological partnership, and the transfer of skills.
President Jacob Zuma, who is visiting Senegal, met with his Senegalese counterpart, Macky Sall, where they agreed that relations between the two countries remained solid. Agreements were signed in the field of agriculture as well as cooperation in the field of arts and culture.
“The signing of these two agreements demonstrates that both people-to-people relations, as well as agro-industrial partnership for development are important to our relationship,” Zuma said.
He said there was considerable scope for bilateral cooperation in trade and economic development, energy, security, environment, and mining beneficiation among others.
The South Africa-Senegal Business Forum was scheduled to meet today to discuss areas of economic cooperation in investments in the two economies.
“We have also discussed the need to strengthen the African Union to ensure that it plays its role effectively to promote socio-economic development and peace and stability in the continent,” Zuma said in a statement.
South Africa and Senegal needed to contribute more to the building of stronger regional economic communities which were the building blocks of the African Union.
“Both of us are also only too aware of the importance of investing in infrastructure development in the continent so that we can better promote regional economic integration, intra-Africa trade and tourism.”
South Africa and Senegal continued to play an important role in promoting peace and stability through participating in peacekeeping operations in their regions. –SAnews.gov.za
