Germany provides 28 million USD for infrastructure in Senegal
24 June 2011
Senegal is to receive financing of almost 28 million dollars from the German cooperation agency, the KfW, as a contribution to the financing of several infrastructure, decentralization and local development projects across the country.
The finance contract was signed Tuesday June 21 2011 in the presence of the Senegalese minister of Finances, Abdoulaye Diop, and the director of the KfW, Dr Klaus Mueller.
He explained that this program will accentuate the strengthening of local communities, good local governance and the construction of structuring infrastructures.
The regions of Kaolack, Kaffrine, Fatick and Ziguinchor, Kolda and Sédhiou will thus benefit from basic infrastructures and farm-to-market roads.
"Major infrastructures are planned for Casamance in order to relaunch economic and social activities by constructing farm-to-market roads and agricultural infrastructures" explained Dr Klaus Mueller, in a quote by the newspaper Le Soleil.
