IT Senegal

The overall purpose of the NTF IV programme is to increase the competitiveness of producers and exporters in selected sectors within priority developing countries, including the IT and IT Enabled Services` (ITES) sector in Senegal.

The NTF-IV programme is a collaboration between International Trade Center (ITC) and CBI.  ITC focusses on regional and other export markets, CBI has an exclusive focus on EU markets. ITC and CBI agreed that ITC will focus more on training, CBI more on additional coaching for potential exporters to the EU.

The principal objective of all stakeholders in the Senegalese IT & ITES industry is to foster an environment that will lead to the service providers’ successful development in serving the local, regional and international markets.

Focal points CBI programme 2019-2021

The programme will focus on reaching three outcomes:

  • Through direct technical support to 7 companies growth in export as well as growth in number of jobs is expected. The CBI coaching focusses on facilitating market entry into the European market.
  • An improved image of the IT sector in Senegal will help companies to have better access to foreign markets.
  • Improved access to services leading to an improved access to the market and a growth in revenue for assisted companies.  The main supported partner is expected to develop and implement new services aimed at exporting IT-companies.
