Consortium DiafrikInvest

DIASPORA TO FOSTER ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND PRODUCTIVE INVESTMENT

“Since the 80’s, « diaspora » is used to refer to the national communities interacting with each other and with their country of origin. Generally, this interaction materializes through three main sectors: local development, business, science & technology. Countries such as Morocco, Tunisia and Senegal consider entrepreneurship as one of the main development channels. Based on this view, the European Union implemented DiafrikInvest to strengthen business relations between Europe, Morocco, Tunisia and Senegal and contribute to the economic development.

In the framework of this project, coordinated by ANIMA Investment Network, CJD Senegal just like StartUp Morocco and CONECT in Tunisia, elaborated an advocacy strategy including measures and propositions aimed to improve the support provided to diaspora entrepreneurs wishing to get involved in Senegal.”
