He also mentioned the need and It is important for Senegal to have an industrial estate if we want to emerge. This opportunity is used by the head of government to rebel against the lack of technology needed to manufacture certain products. "Even the button, we import it in Africa.

The government has made toll roads that function properly and make money.It is up to the private sector to take over Mohammad B. Abdallah Dionne also regrets the visa requirements imposed on Africans on the continent. "To go to several countries, in Africa, you need a visa: there is a problem! At the community level, there are no problems. But as soon as you change your area, you need a visa. So, there is a small problem that, outside of large conferences, you and the private sector must go towards solving this problem. "
