    APA-Dakar (Senegal)

    The Senegalese head of state on Sunday evening announced a bill on the management of oil and gas resources discovered in the country.

    “The oil and gas resources discovered will boost Senegal’s growth rate. These resources will be carefully managed. Thus, a bill on their management will be submitted in 2018 to the National Assembly after consultations in the nation,” Macky Sall said in his New Year address to the nation.

    Sall added that the oil and gas resources will increase the country’s growth rate currently projected at 6.8 percent in 2017 and to be more than 7 percent in 2018.

    “With this growth rate, Senegal will achieve the best economic performance in Africa for the third year in a row,” he declared.

    In his speech, President Sall praised the contribution of the Senegalese diaspora which, he said, participates in the country’s development and national solidarity efforts.

    In the education sector, Sall announced the construction of 6400 classrooms, seven new high schools and more than 4000 science blocks in 2018.
