Press release: Internationalization projects in Africa

Press release: Internationalization projects in Africa
Author: Stefano Rossi The last business mission organized by EXP Legal in Senegal, Dakar, ended…
Stefano Rossi

Senegal has long been a country of strategic importance in the expansion of EXP Legal on the African continent, particularly in the area of West Africa.

Since 2014, the launch year of the “Plan Senegal Emergent” program, the Senegalese economy has advanced at increasing rates (4.3% in 2014, 6.4% in 2015, 6.6% in 2016, 6.7% in 2017, 6.8% in 2018). Political stability, strong integration into the regional economy, the optimal geographical position and a “pro business” legislative and regulatory framework are the other positive aspects to consider.

The mission in Dakar, led by Avv. Stefano Rossi, had as main objective the strengthening of the presence of the Firm in Senegal and the network expansion of professional co-operation relationships on site: a network of primary African law and consulting firms to work synergistically in order to assist clients in the whole region according to their needs.

In addition to supporting its clients in the development and implementation of new export plans in Africa, the Firm assists companies in more complex investment operations in multiple product and industrial sectors.

In the coming months, an event will take place in Rome dedicated to business opportunities for Italian companies in Africa, followed by a new multisectoral business mission in Senegal, this time dedicated to a selected number of companies.
