Country Overview

The Republic of Senegal is located in West Africa on the Atlantic Ocean, and is bordered by Mauritania, Mali, Guinea, and Guinea-Bissau and surrounds most of Gambia. Senegal’s area is 197,000 sq. km. and the population is estimated at over 16,619,225 million (2019). There are two seasons, the rainy and the dry.

The capital, Dakar, is on the country’s westernmost tip on the Cap-Vert peninsula. It is the capital and the country’s largest city with more than 1 million residents. Touba is the second largest city at over 500,000 residents.


Senegal is a strong regional performer on measures of perceptions of economic growth. This result comes from long-term development processes, principally traditions of respect for the rule of law and competitive democratic government. It is expected robust real GDP growth in 2020-21, supported by infrastructure investment and rising industrial and agricultural output. In 2022-24 real GDP growth will rise even more strongly as modest oil production comes on stream.
