Republic of Senegal

The importance of bilateral relations to Brazil's relationship with the African continent is shown by the presence of a Brazilian representation in Senegalese soil in the 19th Century (Consulate in Dakar). Shortly after the independence of Senegal (1960), the Embassy of Brazil in Dakar was created – the first Brazilian Embassy in Sub-Saharan Africa. The Embassy of Senegal in Brazil was opened in 1963.

Relations have been strengthened over the last decade. Presidential meetings were held on the occasion of the Rio+20 Conference (2012), in Rio de Janeiro, and of the 3rd Africa–South America Summit (2013), in Malabo, in addition to a series of visits of foreign ministers in 2012, 2013 and 2015.

In March 2018, the Senegalese Prime Minister visited Brazil, accompanied by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, to represent his country at the 8th World Water Forum held in Brasília. On the occasion, he met with the Brazilian President. Senegal will host the next World Water Forum in 2021

Technical cooperation has been one of the central pillars of the bilateral relationship. Brazil and Senegal have partnerships in projects covering areas such as horticulture, dairy farming, rice production, manioc cultivation, family farming, biofuels, and fight against sickle cell anemia.

The rescheduling of Senegal’s debt to Brazil, concluded in 2013, enables Brazilian companies interested in operating in or exporting to Senegal to apply for export funding, thus offering new prospects for the intensification of bilateral exchanges.
