Germany has been an important development cooperation partner for Senegal since its independence in 1960. The German Government has so far undertaken projects worth approximately 800 million euros in Senegal and in 2006 it provided nearly 120 million euros in bilateral debt relief to the country. Germany’s current level of commitments for development cooperation with Senegal amounts to around 20 million euros per year, with a particular focus on renewable energy. Economic Cooperation and Development Minister Gerd Müller visited Senegal in August 2016.
