The Emerging Senegal Plan (PSE) is an economic and social development program for Senegal launched in 2014 by President Macky Sall. It is a long-term project aimed at transforming the country's economy and improving the living conditions of its population. Its success will depend on the effective implementation of the projects and reforms necessary to achieve the set objectives.
In 2012, Macky Sall was elected President of Senegal. He takes office with a strong commitment to the economic development of the country. It is in this context that in 2014 he officially launched the implementation phase of the Emerging Senegal Plan with the objective of stimulating economic growth and investment on the one hand, and improving the living conditions of the population, particularly in the areas of health, education and employment on the other hand.
In the process, several flagship projects and reforms of the esp are beginning to be implemented, through an innovative monitoring and implementation system focused around the creation of a Delivery Unit (the BOS) and the appointment of Heads of projects for piloting flagship actions.
During the first years of the implementation of the esp, notable progress was made in various areas, including economic growth, increased electricity production, increased agricultural and mining production, road infrastructure, the construction of the Diamniadio Industrial Park and the development of the digital ecosystem (among others).
THE ESP has faced challenges including mobilizing funding, creating sufficient jobs, and reducing inequalities. In 2020 the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the global economy, including on Senegal. The Senegalese government must face the economic challenges posed by this crisis, and address other challenges linked to climate change or the consequences of the Russo-Ukrainian war, while continuing to move forward in the implementation of the esp.
THE ESP therefore continues with the objective of making Senegal an emerging country by 2035.
