Senegal: Exporter Guide
In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic pushed real gross domestic product (GDP) growth down to less than one percent. However, Senegal remains to be one of the most stable countries in Africa with the fourth largest economy in the West Africa region. The top food and beverage suppliers to Senegal are the European Union, India, Brazil and China, followed by regional trade partners, Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana. Imports account for around 70 percent of the total food supply in Senegal, yet the U.S. market share is just under one percent. In 2020, the U.S. exported $16 million of food and agricultural products to Senegal, with exports of corn accounting for $5 million. The top prospects for U.S. agricultural exports to Senegal include feed grains and select consumer-oriented products.
