Zuma says bye-bye to Senegal

03 October 2013, 09:00

Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma concluded his working visit to Senegal on Wednesday.

"We have achieved our goal and a lot has been accomplished at economic and political levels during this visit," he said in a statement issued by the presidency.

"There will be a lot of progress going forward."

The aim of the visit was to strengthen social, economic and political relations between South Africa and Senegal.

Presidency spokesperson Mac Maharaj said there was a desire to strengthen co-operation on air transport, with a view of making Dakar a hub to serve the entire West African region.

He said the two countries had agreed to pursue the establishment of a well-developed aviation maintenance service which was capable of meeting the demands of this sector.

"In this regard, they instructed their ministers responsible for this sector to undertake the necessary steps as soon as possible," said Maharaj.

He said the two presidents also agreed to strengthen co-operation in other areas such as agriculture, mining, trade, tourism, higher education, training, scientific and technical research, and energy.

"They also expressed their satisfaction with the dynamic military co-operation between Senegal and South Africa, marked by intensive exchanges between the two countries' armed forces."
