Special focus: SPACE, Senegal's partner

A Senegalses delegation of 25 members, headed by the Minister of Breeding, Dr Oumy Khaïry Gueye, visited SPACE 2005. Composed by farmers unions representatives, official organizations and farmers, this delegation, led by Ibrahima NDOYE, SPACE spokesman in, has come to create new partnerships and get upgrades concerning new techniques in animal health and stock-breeding building.

The Minister admitted she was impressed: 'I thought it was just a local exhibition but it does g ather professionals on a truly international level'. As Senegal is still in a development process, the sector is still weak, and this visit will maybe allow the country to integrate bigger international markets.
