Président du club
TOGETHER, For a Strong National Private Sector!
Senegal is a young nation whose first economic achievements are the work of the state. He concentrated in him the roles of planner, builder, regulator, investor. The evolution of our country deviated the state from this initial trajectory and freed up space for the national private sector. Without real means and visible state strategy, Senegalese men and women have taken it upon themselves to undertake, at their own risk, to create an emulation around the ecosystem of the company and to replace the public service in the fields which were open.
Today, without being perfect, Senegal’s national private sector exists and is organized. It’s already a merit! But it remains to unify, to fine tune, to better frame and especially to make it the main interlocutor of national and international decision makers.
The board of CIS
The Board of Directors of the Senegalese Investors Club is composed of twelve (12) members elected at the meeting of constitution.
