The first part of the session is focused on discussing business and investment opportunities among Brazil, Senegal, and Gambia. Then, the second part will be a Networking meeting from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Potential partner

Brazil and Senegal share a meaningful cooperative and business exchange relationship. However, both countries need to strengthen that relationship by increasing investments and fostering economic activity to benefit both countries.

Flávio Lima Rocha, the Brazilian Ambassador to Senegal, believes that empowering this trade will directly contribute to generating revenue and create more employment.  “The bilateral trade exchange will give rise to 100 million dollars yearly that does not even reflect the solidity of this relationship and neither the potential for trade investments from these two countries. There is much more to do in this field,” believes Rocha.

Some of the main partners of JBN are the Brazilian Foreign Affairs Ministry and the Brazilian Agency for Promoting Exportations and Investments (APEX-BRASIL). From the Senegalese side, there is support from APIX-Senegal, the Chamber of Commerce, the Dakar Industrial and Agriculture Agency (CCIAD), the Senegalese Investor Club (CIS), the Patronat National Council (CNP), and the Outarde Bank.
