  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

In March 2020, the Government of Senegal (GoS) enacted several measures to curb the spread of Covid-19 such as curfews, air and land border closures, and movement restrictions within the country; however, these measures have also greatly affected the economy. In April 2020, the GoS launched the Economic and Social Resilience Program to support many parts of the economy, including tourism and livestock. The program’s budget is set at one trillion CFA francs (US $1.67 billion). On June 29, 2020, President Sall announced the GoS is working on a Post-COVID economic program to relaunch the economy which will prioritize several key sectors including agriculture, livestock, manufacturing, and tourism.
